Late last week, Jersey City hosted its inaugural Le Dîner en Blanc. Over 1,000 guests arrived at Lincoln Park dressed to the nines in all white, equipped with their own tables, white tablecloths, white chairs, white table settings, and white tableware. The night was full of socializing, snacking, drinking, admiring art (and outfits), dancing, and celebrating the community.
About the Jersey City Event
Art House Productions hosted the event, which featured an impressive lineup of artists including Sunil Garg of Galleria Ca’ d’Oro, Index Art Center, and Melissa Ulto of Blue Man Group. Getty Institute brought light-up elements to the space.
A group of dancers, led by choreographer Morgaine de Leonardis, dispersed across the park and incorporated their surroundings into their different dance styles. The Big Lazy, an NYC-based instrumental trio, accompanied dinner with jazz- and blues-inspired music. Later in the night, DJ Paul Mendoza kept guests on the dance floor with a fun, upbeat set.
Official event partners for Jersey City included The KRE Group, a local real estate company; CoolVines, a Jersey City based wine retailer; and The Office of Cultural Affairs in Jersey City, an advocate, curator, and producer of local arts and culture.
