RAHWAY – Visitors to Rahway’s First Thursdays monthly arts event will be able to see Tanzania “Exposed” in a special art exhibit at EDGE Galleries, 1571-77 Irving Street.
The United Republic of Tanzania is a nation in East Africa bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the south. The country’s eastern borders lie on the Indian Ocean.
The country, also known as the Land of Kilimanjaro, has many historic sites and game reserves, including Ngorongoro Crater, Mikumi National Park, Serengeti National Park and Lake Victoria where river Nile starts.
The name Tanzania is a portmanteau of Tanganyika and Zanzibar. The two states united in 1964 to form the United Republic of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, which later the same year was renamed the United Republic of Tanzania. The current head of state is President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, elected in 2005.
Come enjoy the art, video, pictures and everything this country has to offer beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 1. This free event has been arranged in conjunction with the Permanent Mission of the United Republic of Tanzania to the United Nations in New York. There will be a special African/Haitian dance performance by the Haitian group Trouppe Flanm of Queens, New York.
Park and ride a free shuttle bus from City Hall parking lot every 10 minutes starting at 5 p.m.
