Drawing to be Held at the Event to Win an Original Photo in a Unique Reclaimed Window Frame 

HOBOKEN, N.J., Aug. 19, 2022Mission 50, New Jersey’s premier coworking space, continues its monthly series of art shows with, “Through the Lens, In the Window,” an event featuring local photographer Joe Epstein. Free and open to the public, the solo art exhibition, reception and drawing to win a unique Epstein photo will be held on Wednesday, August 24, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Mission 50, 50 Harrison Street in Hoboken. 

All event attendees can enter a drawing to win Epstein’s original work, “6011 Arriving,” courtesy of Mission 50. The piece is part of the exhibit, which features photographs that Epstein has paired with reclaimed windows that serve as frames. The drawing will take place at 6:30 p.m. on the night of the art show, and the winner must be present to win. 

The Epstein exhibition will be on Mission 50’s second floor, in the Saloon and adjoining spaces. Guests can enjoy wine and desserts, and free on-site parking is available during the event. 

A Unique Window into Each Story 
During his 25-year career as an award-winning photojournalist, Epstein served on the staff of the Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest newspaper. He launched Joe Epstein Photography in 2009 to expand his creativity into other mediums within photography. He has a studio in Union City, N.J., and his work has taken him across the globe – from Africa and Brazil to the United Kingdom and Indonesia. 

Ten years ago, Epstein began collecting window frames during his travels. He painstakingly repairs and refinishes each frame, replacing the glass with UV-protected plexiglass to preserve the photos. He then carefully selects the right image that works with the window’s unique characteristics, and fits in a way that enhances the story captured in the image.  

“Showcasing the work of dynamic local artists including Joe Epstein is an extension of the creative coworking experience that we cultivate at Mission 50,” said Gregory Dell’Aquila, CEO of JDA Group LLC, which owns the coworking and boutique office property. “The wealth of talent and expertise this region has to offer allows us to continually curate experiences that are aligned with the diverse interests of our members.” 

Mission 50: A Collaborative Coworking and Community Space 
Mission 50 was launched by Dell’Aquila in 2011 as one of the first premium coworking sites in the New York/New Jersey region. In 2021, he spearheaded a multi-million-dollar renovation and reintroduction of the 80,000-square-foot boutique office building in response to evolving workplace needs. The result is a reimagined coworking community that fosters collaboration, creativity and productivity. 

The building has multiple workspace environments including shared coworking spaces, privacy pods, private office suites, and fully customizable office concepts. Upscale amenities, state-of-the-art technology and a menu of membership options cater to professionals ranging from solo workers and growing startups to seasoned businesses and traditional enterprises.
