If you’re an artist who likes to work on a large scale, you’re going to want to get in contact with Elina Rosenblum of BlumArts. The Verona-based artist, who has done large-scale public art projects in South Orange, Maplewood and Metuchen, is now going to be making use of the large windows in the former Terry’s store on Bloomfield Avenue in a new project.

Rosenblum is looking for happy, colorful, and cheerful art to temporarily display in those eight big windows. “Large artworks will work best, and can be any medium,” she says. “There is no monetary compensation for participation, but a great satisfaction of elevating the town spirit, inspiring each other, and a terrific opportunity to promote your art while making new friends.”

Rosenblum has been talking to Steve Neale, Verona’s director of economic development for some time to find the right location for public art project. They did some brainstorming around Terry’s, which closed last year after 85 years in Verona. Neale reached out to the building’s new owner, who agreed to host the artwork.

If you have a piece you’d like to loan for the show, email a photo of it with description and size to [email protected] . If you don’t have something ready to display but want to create something, you can also email Rosenblum your sketches. Keep in mind that most of the Terry’s windows get lots of direct sunlight.

“There is no theme for the artworks,” she says. “The only requirements are that they bring viewers joy, and be appropriate for all ages.” The project is open to all artists, professional and amateur, who live in Verona, or very close by. The works will be installed as soon as Rosenblum has enough for all the windows.

“I’m looking forward to meeting other local artists this way,” she says.
