MILLBURN, NJ - As part of their slate of activities, Millburn's Cultural Engagement, Diversity and Arts Committee (CEDA), has found an innovative new way to bring the artistic and historical sides of the town together.
The new project, called “Millwheels Rolling into Millburn” will provide groups and organizations in the community with an opportunity to paint and decorate a 30-inch wooden millwheel. Each organization that has a wheel can decorate as they so choose.
Groups and organizations are allowed to let their creative juices flow in designing their millwheels for the project.
At the kickoff event on April 7, there will be a variety of activities. They include an active painting demonstration by artist Dan Fenelon, as well as the opportunity to view a community millwheel on display.
Hands-on craft participation will be available for all age groups at the event. Refreshments will also be served.
All township groups are encouraged to attend the kick-off event of Millburn’s first Community Public Art Project in Taylor Park on April 7. The final event and presentation of the millwheels will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 with a rain date of Sunday, Sept. 8.
