Art-in-Place Exhibition Features Princeton Artists

“LIFE ON SPRINGDALE”: Mary Waltham’s artwork is displayed on Springdale Road as part of the international Art-in Place initiative. Three other artists, Mic Boekelmann, Robin Resch, and Vince Bush, are also participating locally.

Four Princeton artists are participating in Art-in-Place, an international initiative from Terrain Exhibitions and CNL projects based in Chicago. Art-in-Place “invites artists to exhibit an original work of art to be displayed outside their home or from a window visible to the public.”

This collective action provides artists and community members with a sense of hope and connectivity through the experience of public art during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The four Princeton participants, all members of the just-formed Princeton Artist Directory (PAD), are Mic Boekelmann (www.micboekelmann.com) at 293 Snowden Lane, Robin Resch (www.robinresch.net) at 46 Linden Lane, Vince Bush (www.vcabdesigns.com) at 201 Loetscher Place, and Mary Waltham (www.marywaltham.com) at 184 Springdale Road.

More than 275 individual artists in the US, Canada, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, and Peru are exhibiting Art-in-Place that will run until June 20. Visit cnlprojects.org/artinplace to view all participating artists. A collection of postcards documenting all the work in Art-in-Place will serve as an archive of the project, a fundraising effort, and a platform to offer art as a way to connect with others.
