From local to international artists, Jersey City’s mural arts program is one of the most expansive and diverse in the nation and continues to be a citywide success.

IT'S YOUR WORLD
By Chris Stain & Billy Mode
I’ve had friends in Jersey City for many years and there has always been a lot of creative people here but I’m inspired by the surge of creative support and cultural emphasis that seems to be especially vibrant with the new mural program. The mural is designed to symbolize the renaissance and the cultural wave that Jersey City is riding while also acknowledging its waterfront location and the beauty and power of Mother Nature. I’m a huge believer in the power of public art and grateful to Mayor Fulop for supporting my work as well as public art in general.
