Green Villain was founded in 2009 inside the historic Clorox Bleach Factory located in one of the industrial sections of Jersey City. The 20k sq ft warehouse featured artist studios, a wood shop, event spaces, a lofted office, two rooftops with panoramic city views of New York City and lots of graffiti.
Today, Green Villain is an art gallery, a vinyl imprint (Green Village), an event series (GVX) and a public art project (GVM). With offices in Jersey City, Denver and Berlin they curate, produce and consult for the greater real estate community, regional businesses and the public/private sectors alike. With a global reach their goal is to showcase the talent within Jersey City in hopes to put it on the map as a cultural destination.
Most recently, they are spearheading a coalition of architects, designers, scholars, educators, community activists, videographers and media outlets to help reconceptualize an abandoned train tunnel commonly referred to as the Bergen Arches into a cultural destination in the heart of Jersey City.
