The Newark Museum of Art hosts the Newark Arts Festival’s annual fall exhibition and the opening of NAF 2022.

The arts provide some of the most powerful outlets for spreading healing in our world. The theme in 2022 features art as medicine. As an acknowledgement of the challenges of our times, NAF 2022 aims to create a collective restorative experience through thoughtfully curated artwork, performances, and programming meant to help our artist community and Festival attendees heal holistically. Participating artists have been challenged to demonstrate what healing means or looks like to them and inspire others with their messages of hope, comfort, and encouragement.

Visit NAF’s website to learn more about the Festival, its programs, and the other venues showcasing art.

Join us to celebrate NAF 2022 with an opening event on October 6.
