Culmination of our second Newark Open Doors, launch of new website, winter 2013

Many updates from the past few months. First of all, oculusart.org 2.0 has been launched! There areĀ  a number of new and excited updates on this new website, including:

 

  • A complete, searchable archive of past events
  • An easy membership form
  • An up-to date monthly meeting schedule
  • Chronicles of on going publications, projects, and events
  • Detailed artist info/statements
  • ‘Artist’s Spotlight’

 

In other news, the organization continues to continue.

The past few months have largely been devoted to the construction of our collaborative work “The New World is Going to Need Houses”, a conceptual collaborative show based around themes of utopia, futuristic lifestyles, and communal living. The show was an exhibit in partnership with Gallery Aferro’s yearly Open Doors compendium Market Street Convergence.

Additionally, for the second year in a row, Oculus gave themselves the official task of throwing the unofficial Newark Open Doors after party.
