In Spirit of Communiversity, “Fired-Up” Event Pairs Painting with History of Fire Department
To the Editor,
Each year the Arts Council of Princeton’s (ACP) Communiversity brings the Community and University members together to celebrate the things we love about our town. This year was no exception.
In keeping with the Communiversity spirit, Art +10 (a group of Princeton-area artists) wanted to honor our Volunteer Fire Department. In a unique collaboration with the department, the group hosted a joint paint-out and art show at the Chestnut Street Fire House.
Dubbed “Fired-Up,” the event welcomed visitors to view artists painting and learn the rich history of Princeton’s Fire Department.
Members of Art +10, want to thank Bill Shields, president of Princeton Engine Co. #1, the Princeton Fire Department, and the Blue Jersey Band (which provided a festive background), for making this event happen.
Members of Art +10: Priscilla Algava, Heather Barros, Jim Bongartz, Betty Curtiss, Katja De Ruyter, Suzanne Dinger, Johanna Furst, Jeaninne Honstein Ryan Lilienthal, Meg Michael, Tasha O’Neill
