WOODBURY’S FAF COALITION PRESENTS LOT 323
Woodbury, New Jersey-based creative placemaking organization The FAF Coalition, known best for their acclaimed 2012 & 2013 “FAF” Arts Festival and 2015 Rock The Woo, is ecstatic to Present… LOT 323; a POP-UP Park, which creates a semi-permanent venue that will exist July and August of 2016, then will be dismantled into multiple permanent art installations throughout the City of Woodbury.
The Space: an urban garden/park with an industrial motif- an inviting area to gather, play, remotely work, relax and enjoy light fare and entertainment. A fun “Third-Space” that’s FREE for the public to enjoy as well as available, by reservation, for emerging artists and musicians, other arts and cultural organizations, schools and educational groups to promote their programs and engage their audiences. LOT 323 will be an open flow-through park monitored in part by the City of Woodbury Police Department. The space will be outfitted with furniture that is designed to be played with, painted, written and/or climbed on. The focal point of the area will include a performance stage, which will repurpose surrounding architectural elements.
