Chatham's History Celebrated in Mural Unveiled at Fishawack

June 15, 2014 at 12:55 AM

CHATHAM, NJ - It took three-plus years and 14 months of actually painting, but it was well worth the wait.

The Chatham Public Arts Council, led by Jennifer Voigt Kaplan and Dawn Paruta, and lead artist Kenji Hasegawa, displayed the fruits of their labor at Fishawack with a 9-panel, hand-painted mural that now adorns the underpass on Fairmount Avenue.

"The mural is a visual celebration of what Chatham is and was," according to the brochure put together by the Public Arts Council. "The images portrayed are a sampling of our collective identity in 2011."
