ELIZABETH, NJ - “The Snowman Project” is enjoyed by many as they walk through Union Square Plaza on Elizabeth Avenue, but many do not know where they came from, who created them. Here is what you don’t know about the amazing project!
David Strochak, Executive Director for The Elizabeth Avenue Partnership (EAP) spoke to Ms. Suzanne Fenelli and her 4th Grade Class at Winfield Scott School #2, about the role a Special Improvement District plays in the City of Elizabeth. The children, in turn, explained how they decorated their Snow-Woman using arts and crafts including two types of pasta, silk flowers, gold lipstick tops, a cloth hat, pines cones, and a snowflake.
This class project was part of a collaborative project between the Elizabeth Avenue Partnership and the Elizabeth Public Schools Arts Department to create 10 decorative Snowmen for the holidays to be displayed at Union Square Plaza on Elizabeth Avenue to go along with the 15 Wooden Toy Soldiers displayed there.
This is the fourth project they have collaborated on starting with those Wooden Toy Soldiers last year, the Traffic Box Mural Project in May and the Wooden Scarecrows this Fall.
The Elizabeth Avenue Partnership (EAP) is a non-profit organization, designated by the City of Elizabeth to manage the Elizabeth Avenue Special Improvement District (SID). Since 1999, the EAP’s mission has been to revitalize and enhance all aspects of the shopping district.
By focusing on the following areas; aesthetics, safety and security, parking and quality business development, the Elizabeth Avenue Shopping district continues to become a more attractive and safer place for fun shopping, fine dining, and first-rate merchandise.
