Community Voices Workshop: Tile Making

In-person

Hosted by The Newark Museum of Art

In celebration of Indigenous People’s Day, Nina Cooke John, the Architect and Designer of Newark’s Harriet Tubman Monument, invites the Newark community to participate in the monument’s inaugural tile-making workshop. In this Community Voices Workshop, guests will be asked to etch their stories of freedom and liberation onto wet clay that will later be fired and integrated into the final design of the monument.

In June 2020, amid calls for racial justice and by order of Mayor Ras Baraka, the city initiated the removal of the Christopher Columbus statue in Newark’s Washington Park. Replacing it will be a new monument to honor the legacy of Harriet Tubman and the history of the Underground Railroad. The Harriet Tubman Monument is projected to be revealed in Summer 2022.

This tile-making workshop will invite Newark residents to be an integral part of this public project. It will intertwine the relevance of community in Tubman’s story, as the conductor of the Underground Railroad, with our own stories.

The Community Voices tile-making workshop is a partnership between The Newark Museum of Art, Newark Arts, and the City of Newark.
