***********The purpose of the event is to raise money for "The HeistProject," Art House Productions' multimedia theatricalpresentation scheduled to be staged in November 2005.

Based on the convergence of two true stories, "The HeistProject" is a collage of still art, poetry, live theater and musicexploring the value society places on its art and artists.
In 1990, the theft of thirteen works by artists such as Rembrandt, Degas and Vermeer from the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts shocked the world. And, because Ms. Gardner's will stipulated that the museum could not be altered after her death, thegallery walls remain bare today, a poignant testament to the great loss. One man who claims to know where the art is being held poses this question to the FBI: Is it more important to punish someone for the crime or to getthe art back?

In 2005, Jersey City, NJ is undergoing a massive social and economic shift. For decades, professional artists have inhabited the cluster of warehouses-turned-studios known as the Powerhouse Arts District (PAD) and have championed the arts in Jersey City, celebrating diversity and collaboration with citywide events such as the annual JerseyCity Artists Studio Tour. During the recent period, property development has led to demolition in the PAD, resulting in loss, displacement and questions about the future of art in America's burgeoning cities.
