We’re back in New Jersey this week at Mana Contemporary, an arts center based in Jersey City. Thirty minutes outside of New York City, Mana Contemporary is the host of exhibitions, galleries, residencies and arts styles for everyone. Its current exhibition is “Implied Scale: Confronting the Enormity of Climate Change” on display until July 22. Featured artists include Ted Kim, Catherine Chalmers, Zaria Forman, Jeff Frost and James Prosek. Each work notes the varying, but devastating, effects of climate change through the lived experience of each artist. Learn more and RSVP here. Tickets are free.
Grab dinner and drinks just down the street at Ani Ramen House, a Jersey City staple when craving good ramen. We recommend the Mazeman (brothless bowl) and panko shrimp buns. You won’t regret it. It offers indoor and outdoor seating, although outdoor is limited to one hour. Make a reservation here.
