This laughable lampoon will feature comedians Eric Feurer, Woody Fu, Erica Hernandez, Johnathan Ross, and Elena Skopetos. Audiences can Zoom in and watch these funny folks send up the museum experiences with a bit of irreverence. This program is recommended for mature audiences only. It contains adult language and jokes.
“The Newark Museum of Art asked Art House to partner on this unique and creative program that connects two art forms that don’t typically collaborate. We’re hoping the Art Roast, mixing visual art with comedy, is a step toward broadening, diversifying, and strengthening audiences for both our organizations,” says Meredith Burns, Art House executive director.
The Newark Museum of Art is New Jersey’s largest museum. It holds major collections of American art, decorative arts, contemporary art, and arts of Asia, Africa, the Americas, and the ancient world. Its extensive collections of American art include works by Hiram Powers, Thomas Cole, John Singer Sargent, Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Church, Childe Hassam, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, Joseph Stella, Tony Smith and Frank Stella. The mission of The Newark Museum of Art is to welcome everyone with inclusive experiences that spark curiosity and foster community.
