The rain did not dampen our vision for Art in the Park!! Columbia Middle School was transformed into an art paradise, filled with an array of artists whose talents are nothing short of magical! The Peppertown Park Art in the Park Committee would like to thank all of the artists who came to our very first Art in the Park event. We are in awe of your creativity and immeasurable talents! You all helped to put Berkeley Heights on the map as an artist’s destination!

Also, a very special thank you to the Berkeley Heights Board of Education, Superintendent Judith Ratner, Diane Azalone, Administrative Secretary and the custodial staff of CMS, who all helped to create a very smooth transitional rain plan for us.
