Hackensack Is On The Rise Poster Project Installed in Main Street Businesses
“The arts can help build economic resiliency. Through the simple idea of putting up posters in a concentrated space, the pop of colorful imagery and a positive message punctuates the background of the pandemic and its hard-hitting effects on small businesses. This is the power of the arts—to uplift and draw people out emotionally and physically," explained Danielle De Laurentis, Associate Director, Northern NJ Community Foundation.
"The Alliance is thrilled to co-sponsor with NNJCF Arts Bergen, this amazing messaging announcing a new dawning on Main Street. It encapsulates perfectly the positive message for all who come to Hackensack that our communities’ best is just ahead of us. We are very excited about our poster project, Hackensack Is On The Rise, said Patrice Foresman, Executive Director, Main Street Business Alliance.
This program is made possible in part by a grant administered by the Bergen County Division of Cultural & Historic Affairs (BCDHCA) from funds granted by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
