To lose any cultural institution is a sad reality, but I don’t recall the museum to hold anything that interesting (to me). Even the contemporary art was mediocre. But, I’m not an artist and don’t really know much about art appreciation.


Sad that building is likely to become another medical office. It’s in the perfect location and size for a desperately needed supermarket. Even a brewery would work well there. I’m sure the VVPA is content to let it sit vacant however.

The Mana does not have historic JC artifacts. In 1960, I was a child, reading about JC having a 300th birthday. I lived in Hoboken, both the Jersey Journal and the Hudson Dispatch ran stories on JC history. There was a building that had artifacts on Jersey City near the old Dutch cemetery. Those artifacts are nowhere to be found. The only thing that is left is the 16th century Dutch Bible. A lot of times are missing.

To puhleeze....The pull of mana is vastly greater than that of a future local museum with a staid collection of artifacts

Display it and they will come…

See the stunning new N.J. art exhibit that thousands stopped to visit

By Aristide Economopoulos | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Thousands of visitors traveled to Jersey City (JOURNAL SQUARE) this past Sunday to attend The Mana Contemporary Fall 2019 Open House.

Over 100 studios were open, with the artists meeting members of the public and talking about their work. According to Mana Contemporary's Artistic Director and co-founder Eugene Lemay, having the open house twice a year allows the artists the time to develop new work that they can share with the public. A free event, it is one of two open houses Mana puts on each year, with one also taking place in the spring.

Jersey City’s loss is Rutgers’ gain: Dormant museum collection 'gifted’ to state university

Updated 6:42 PM; Today 4:42 PM (10/4/2019)
By Ron Zeitlinger | The Jersey Journal

The sign sits in front of 350 Montgomery St., a silent reminder of an institution that thrived for more than 100 years, then ran into financial troubles and died a slow death.

“Jersey City Museum” says the sign in white letters, just below an official Jersey City logo. The sign belongs to the city. The museum, which closed in 2010 and reopened briefly in 2012, did not.
