Posters & Logos from Contest Entries
Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty
Ushering in a brand new cultural collaboration between the Jersey City Free Public Library and New Jersey City University (NJCU), a special art exhibit had hung in the picture windows surrounding the Five Corners Branch.
The Five Corners Branch Library, in conjunction with NJCU art students, presented an art exhibit of Posters and Logos from contest entries for the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty, which was held in 2011 and sponsored by the National Park Service (NPS). Both competitions were open to NJCU students and alumni, having the anniversary theme: “Honor History – Envision the Future.”
The Opening Reception of the NJCU Art Students Posters & Logos Exhibit Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty was held on Monday, May 6, in the lobby, outside the Mildred H. Hunke Auditorium of the Five Corners Branch Library, 678 Newark Avenue, Jersey City. The art exhibit ran from Monday, May 6 to Wednesday, July 31, encompassing two national holidays – Memorial Day and Independence Day, with special celebratory significance since the Statue of Liberty opens again to the public on the Fourth of July. Lady Liberty was closed for repairs due to damage from Hurricane Sandy.
