 Background information:

Mana an historic building in Jersey City, is named after the former owner. Built in the 1920s it was a tobacco factory and later a warehouse for a furniture store. As such its large rooms, high ceilings, big windows and well built foundation is perfect to repurpose for the arts.

In 2011 it was acquired by an art organization and now houses the achieves of recognized museums (such as ICP and Historical Society of New York) provides exhibit space and artists studios for both established artists and young emerging students. It will eventually encompass a footprint of more than two million sq ft.  Through its integrated architectural design, Mana offers exceptional services, spaces, and programming for the greater creative community.
