Ray Arcadio’s Art Focuses on Self-Identity
Arcadio is a street artist, graphic designer and founding member of Jersey City’s culture jamming collaborative group, Artfux. His work is about self-identity and the human struggle to know oneself, and encompasses masks, symbols, and urban and indigenous markings, as well as socio-political messages. A graduate of New Jersey City University, Arcadio has participated in numerous solo and group shows throughout New York and New Jersey, and has exhibited extensively around the United States.
“Mission 50’s environment is one designed to inspire and foster creativity,” said Gregory Dell’Aquila, CEO of JDA Group LLC, which owns the coworking and boutique office property. “Ray Arcadio’s exhibition underscores the carefully curated experiences and engaging programming that cultivates a sense of community here. It is an ideal representation of what Mission 50 is all about as a vibrant coworking space.”
Mission 50: A Dynamic Coworking and Community Space
Dell’Aquila launched Mission 50 as one of the first premium coworking sites in the New York/New Jersey region in 2011. Responding to evolving workplace needs, he spearheaded a year-long renovation and expansion project at the 80,000-square-foot boutique office building. Completed in 2021, the renovations created a reimagined coworking community designed to foster collaboration, creativity and productivity.
Multiple workspace environments include 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 of all stripes, ranging from solo workers and growing startups to seasoned businesses and traditional enterprises.
