MILLBURN, NJ - As part of their new emphasis on community art and diversity, the Millburn Township Committee publicly unveiled the new project spearheaded by the Cultural Engagement Diversity and Arts Committee (CEDA).
The newest project from CEDA is focusing on expressing cultural diversity in town through artistic expression with a project called "Millwheels Rolling into Millburn." As previously mentioned, the project will involve local organizations being gifted 30-inch wooden Millwheels to decorate as they see fit.
CEDA chair and Deputy Mayor Jackie Lieberberg spoke briefly at the meeting, laying out the details of the project and what residents could expect at the kickoff event. According to Lieberberg, artist Dan Fenelon will be on hand to demonstrate how to paint and decorate a millwheel.
The kickoff event will also double as an opportunity for interested groups to learn more about the project and how their organization can participate. A hands-on craft project for all ages will also be available. Light refreshments will be provided as well.
The kickoff event will be held at Taylor Park on Sunday, April 7 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event will go on rain or shine.
