Aerie Art that Inspires, with Sunset Cocktails

Granted, this is Bayonne adjacent as opposed to Bayonne local, but it’s still worthy of a mention AND an easy commute!

A collection of 50th-floor Penthouses at 70 Columbus, the iconic luxury rental tower in downtown Jersey City, has been temporarily transformed into a pop-up art exhibition featuring the work of regional artists, artisans and boutiques.

The public, as well as those interested in viewing the luxe apartments which offer stunning views of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty and Downtown Manhattan, will have an opportunity to see the exhibit, titled “Mementos,” in an authentic apartment experience where all art, furnishings and accessories are for sale.  The meticulously curated exhibit, presented by Jersey City-based Panepinto Galleries in collaboration with 70 Columbus, was conceived to showcase neighborhood shops and a superior coterie of artists that weave together themes of love and remembrance through paintings, drawings and sculpture.  “Mementos” is a selection of works inspired by this positive expression, with artwork curated by Michelle Doll and Lisa Lebofsky, jewelry & fashion consulting by Jessica Van Treuren, and interior design by Regina Mariano.
