The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

As 2016 rolls to an end, the Art Advisory committee is grateful to have had the opportunity to publicly honor some people important to us this month.

On December 6th at Millburn Town Hall, the Community Service award was given to Peter and Sofia Blanchard of Greenwood Gardens, as their colleagues from Art Advisory cheered them on. Our successful partnership with Greenwood Gardens gives assistance to many outdoor art projects on their grounds.

During the December 13th annual township volunteer appreciation dinner, we recognized longstanding member Elaine Becker, who stepped down after 18 years of service.

As well as making contributions of time and suggestions on exhibits, we have our beautiful Town Seal in good measure through her efforts. The Art Advisory Committee restored rare Harvey Reed nature photos after Elaine brought them to our attention. She has donated time to our Appraisal fundraisers, and artwork to the permanent collection.
