City Without Walls (cWOW) is an urban gallery of emerging art that advances the careers of artists while building the audience for contemporary art.
City Without Walls is New Jersey's oldest not-for-profit alternative art space, in continuous operation in the City of Newark since 1975. We operate a professional fine art gallery that showcases the work of contemporary artists on-site, off-site, online and through traveling exhibitions.
For Artists: cWOW offers programs and services designed to address artist and community needs. We maintain an online artist registry, hold educational programs on topics relavant to new and established artists' needs, and provide information about other artist opportunities.
For Youth: Our ArtReach education program pairs promising high school art students with working-artist mentors, and offers other students valuable experience through gallery internships.
