What is Express Newark
The Third Space
Express Newark opened its doors in January 2017. Together with Newark artists and arts organizations, faculty, staff, and students from Rutgers University—Newark conceptualized Express Newark as a “Third Space” where everyone communicates on equal footing works in tandem to incubate talent, cultivate engaged scholarship and promote social practice.
Express Newark’s open and welcoming ethos is codified in our logo – a cubic form that is read as open and welcoming space when the letter “E” and “N” form two of the sides of the cube. There are three colors in the logo to represent how the university and community come together to make the “Third Space” or simply stated: 1 + 1 = 3. We recognize that together we are better – we are greater than the sum of our parts.
