Art House is proud to be a resident of one of the most diverse cities in the nation. That diversity is a gift to all of us who live and work here. With it comes a responsibility to ensure that we all have equal access to opportunities and the freedom to pursue our lives in safety and without fear. We believe in the Black Lives Matter movement and will work hard to do our part to elevate the voices of the marginalized and the oppressed.

We stand with the peaceful protestors around the nation courageously fighting for a more just world.  We encourage you to support the movement by taking the following actions:

1. Support black-owned businesses in your neighborhoods. For a list of black-owned businesses in Jersey City and Hoboken, CLICK HERE.

The words of Langston Hughes in his 1951 poem HARLEM, ring true to us at this moment:

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?
