The Art All Night viewing hall in 2017.

It’s coming. With rumors and lawsuits and uncertainty about Art All Night, we decided to ask Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora for a statement about the future of the successful and popular Trenton event that took a blow when a few young men decided to bring their feud to the site, resulting in a shooting at last year’s event.

His response is as follows: “This year’s Art All Night will be bigger and better than ever! I’ve been meeting regularly with event organizers, our police and fire departments, and state law enforcement to adapt our security measures and make sure the event this year is safe and fun for all. This is a celebration of local art and culture, and we are confident that Art All Night will show the best of what Trenton has to offer. I will be there, and I encourage visitors to come out and celebrate with us.”

So the greater Trenton community has a little over three months to get artwork finished for “Art All Night,” scheduled to take place Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16.
