Rahway, NJ has a new theater, a beautifully restored old cinema turned performing arts center, and galleries galore. State of the Arts takes a look at how the arts are driving economic development in a town that was once on the decline. Plus, a visit to two big exhibitions: The New Spirit, about the 1914 Armory Show, and African Cosmos: Stellar Arts, the first major exhibition exploring the intersection of African cultural astronomy with traditional and contemporary African arts. The venue this week is the University Club at Rutgers-Newark for a performance by the Stanley Cowell Trio. Cowell, a classically trained pianist and composer, has been a central figure on the jazz scene since the late 1960s.
