The 23rd Annual Community Art Jam!

Hudson Guild’s first Community Art Jam took place in 1997
and has been an annual tradition since. The
Jam is open to people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of training, providing opportunities to hundreds of
artists in the Chelsea community and beyond to share their work with a large

Art Jam 2014 Installation Moment by Tommy MintzHudson Guild

How the Jam works:

Artists register in advance to participate. Typically, they arrive on the night of the exhibit opening and pick numbers out of a hat. These determine the order in which the artists get to hang their own work on the gallery walls. This year, the Guild moved the exhibit online to abide by social distancing guidelines. The works presented convey the vitality and individuality which have been part of the Jam every year since its inception. Here you will see an incredibly rich variety of ideas and styles juxtaposed in close proximity. Since 1895, Hudson Guild has celebrated diversity and supported thousands of individuals in its community. The Community Art Jam is emblematic of that important mission.
