Originally created in 2009 in honor of the Newark Museum of Art’s Centennial, Party Time: Re-imagine America is a major site-specific installation by internationally acclaimed artist Yinka Shonibare MBE.

On view to coincide with the reinstallation of our Arts of Global Africa collection, Party Time is set in the mahogany-paneled dining room of The Ballantine House, built in 1885 for the prominent Newark brewing family Jeannette and John Holme Ballantine and part of the Museum’s campus since 1937.
