Green Villain

ABOUT

Green Villain is a small group of social entrepreneurs who run an art gallery, regional mural program, record label based out of Jersey City

 

Green Villain was founded in 2009 inside the historic Clorox Bleach Factory located in the last standing industrial sections of Jersey City. The 10k sq ft warehouse featured artist studios, a wood shop, multiple event spaces, lofted offices, two rooftops with panoramic city views and lots of graffiti.

Today Green Villain is an art gallery, a vinyl imprint (Green Village), event series (GVX) and a public art program (GVM). With offices in Jersey City, Denver and Berlin they curate, produce and consult for the greater real estate community, local business and the public/private sectors alike. With a global reach their goal is to showcase the talent  within Jersey City in hopes to put it on the map as a cultural destination. 

Most recently, they are spearheading a coalition of architects, designers, scholars, educators, community activists, videographers and media outlets to help reconceptualize an abandoned train tunnel commonly referred to as the Bergen Arches into a cultural destination in the heart of Jersey City.
