Neumann’s Leathers teams up with Maxwell’s
Hoboken’s legendary music venue, Maxwell’s, will play host in September to the largest fundraiser yet for the Neumann Leathers Tenants Association (NLTA), in an effort to save the city’s last large arts complex from being demolished.
The NLTA is comprised of over 100 artists, artisans and light industry, all located in the Neumann Leathers complex, which is currently under threat of complete demolition. As part of its efforts to save the site, the NLTA will soon present an alternative plan which saves most of the buildings and includes new construction in a feasible redevelopment.
Exhibits A & B
The first event will be an art opening of Neumann artists on Sept. 15 at 7pm, titled “Exhibit A,” which will feature figurative, representational works and photography. The show previews Sept. 6 and runs through Sept. 26.
The second Maxwell’s event will be another art opening of Neumann artists on Sept. 29 at 7 p.m., titled “Exhibit B,” which will feature abstract works. The show will run through Oct. 17.
Yo La Tengo and others to perform
The third event will be a benefit performance at Maxwell’s, also on Sept. 29. Performers will include Yo La Tengo, Outpost, The Jeremy Wallace Trio and Bob Burt’s Five Dollar Priest. Doors open at 7 p.m. and tickets are $25.
Neumann artists who will be showing will include Jennifer Krause, Mike Longo, Michelle Doll, Tim Daly, Bob Piersanti and Mary Ann Farley, among many others. Each art reception will provide free draft beer and wine from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Funds raised will support the NLTA’s legal effort to beat back the current redevelopment plan, which will be heard before the Hoboken Zoning Board Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.
