Art Curators treasure trove in South Orange, NJ

The homeowners at 128 Prospect Place in South Orange, NJ curate, support and sell a treasure trove of contemporary art thru Art For Progress, a charity they run. –

One of many such artists’ works are for sale and prominently featured at their beautiful Victorian home which is also currently for sale.  The artist, Juan Manuel Pajares created the above image, and has a number of other works which combine a street/graffiti vibe with major cultural icons.  Other works feature such icons as John Lennon, Derek Jeter, Mick Jagger, Steve Jobs, Marlon Brando, Angus Young of ACDC…

Stop by the home for this Sunday’s open house (October 5) if you’re interested in seeing a small sampling of this art or in purchasing their home or drop me a line if you can’t make it Sunday.

Here’s a link to my previous post showing their home –
