Westinghouse Project Exhibit Extended to Jan 17

The successful Westinghouse Project exhibit, which commemorates the fall of the Westinghouse plant on Lackawanna Ave and Orange St, will be extended into next year after the gallery is closed for a short period of time. Check out the note from Matt Gosser, the exhibit curator, below.

The Westinghouse Project has been so well received that we decided to extend the exhibit until January 17. In order to do this, we have to shut the gallery down until about December 8. Until then, I’ll be trying to update the website with photos of the artwork, video from an NJN broadcast and info about our closing celebration (so far…Saturday, Jan. 17 at 5pm).

If you haven’t visited the exhibition or if you want to check it out again (additional work is being added) or if you’d like to bring some friends, please do so Monday thru Friday (9am-5pm) between Dec.8 and Jan.17.

If you know anyone that worked at Westinghouse, I’m doing an oral history project. We’re also looking at the possibility of creating a catalog.

  1. I Worked at Westinghouse 66 to 74. My Father (same name) Worked there for 45 years ending 1966.I first went there as a young boy on there family days when they still had over head belts to power the machines. I’m looking for some of my coworkers from that time.

  2. We’re having a small closing reception on Saturday, Jan.17 from 5pm to 8pm for our current exhibition: The Westinghouse Project. It’s free and will include live entertainment. Around 45 artists having created paintings, sculptures, furniture, collage, photography, installations, video, etc, etc out of the remnants of the old Westinghouse factory (which was demolished this year). Additional work has been added since the opening including a 20 min. film, “Ar+cheaology and the Westinghouse Project”. Please tell you friends!
