One night only! Come and enjoy a night out while supporting NP Public Art!
Initiated by the late local artist Marjan Nirou-Saniee in 2015, NP Public Art’s mission is to enrich the quality of New Providence by making works of public art a feature of the community. It receives no funding from the Borough. The three inaugural sculptures were made possible by our first annual fundraiser two year ago, which also featured a silent auction and play performed by high school students. Thanks to that fundraiser, and other private donations, there are now six public sculptures throughout New Providence. These pieces of art, however, are leased for one to two years, so in order to continue our public art program, ongoing support is needed from the community. Members of the community may make a tax deductible contribution to NP Public Art by sending a check to: NPPA, 360 Elkwood Avenue, New Providence.NJ 07974.
