Bloomberg Philanthropies Awards $1 M. to Camden, New Jersey for Public Art Project About Illegal Dumping

Camden, New Jersey, the fifth and final winner of the Bloomberg Philanthropies 2018 Public Art Challenge, will get $1 million for “A New View,” an exhibition of artworks at illegal dumping sites along the state’s public transportation networks.

Those sites include the Port Authority Transit Corporation high-speed line, the RiverLine light rail, and the Camden GreenWay trail. The project, which is led by the urban redevelopment nonprofit Cooper’s Ferry Partnership and Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts, aims to repurpose  these littered areas and inspire Camden residents to combat pollution.
