“Windows of Understanding” a is public art project between The New Brunswick Community Arts Council, Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and the Highland Park Arts Commission.

A selection of Windows of Understanding pieces are hung on the first and second floors of New Brunswick City Hall as part of the Art at City Hall program.

City Hall is located at 78 Bayard Street. City Hall is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and parking is available in the City Hall parking lot located immediately behind the building.

This past spring, approximately two dozen storefront windows throughout New Brunswick and Highland Park showcased a slew of pieces associated with this exhibition, depicting a number of current issues such as cultural identity, faith-based initiatives, environmental conservation, homelessness, food insecurity and youth mentoring.
