Morven in May Co-Chairs Thank All, Report Over 700 Attended Art Show

To the Editor:

On behalf of the “Morven in May: A Celebration of Art, Craft and Garden” committee, we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all who helped make this year’s special event possible, including too many individuals to mention here.  A special thank you to our corporate sponsors who provided both financial and in-kind support, including Baxter Construction; Callaway Henderson International Realty; Howard Design Group; Jack Morton Exhibits; Masterminds Advertising; PrincetonScoop; RBC Wealth Management; Robert Wood Johnson IV Charitable Trust; and Suplee Clooney, & Co.

The weekend commenced with a festive preview garden party under a grand tent on Morven’s Great Lawn.  Three hundred of our friends and neighbors enjoyed delicious fare provided by Main Street Fine Catering while perusing the beautifully crafted art objects on display by our talented invited artisans.  Over 700 attended the art show throughout the weekend alongside our traditional heirloom plant sale, which, this year, sold three times the number of plants than ever before!  All proceeds from Morven in May fund Morven Museum & Garden’s historic gardens, exhibitions and public programs.

Thank you, again, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
