On October 19th, Frontline Arts will hold its annual benefit, STORIES, at the Hunterdon Art Museum to raise much-needed funding for our growing and nationally-recognized veterans' papermaking program that serves over 1500 veterans each year; community and educational papermaking programs; educational classes in non-toxic print & papermaking for adults and uniquely-abled communities; and so much more.
The event will engage our local communities and supporters as we honor Dennis X Murray, long-time Board member who has served his final term recently and advocate of the arts in New Jersey; the Rotary Club of Branchburg, comprised of incredibly devoted Branchburg community and veteran supporters; and Seema Reza’s Community Building Artworks and Ashy Paliparambil from the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore, long-time partners of the Frontline Paper veterans’ papermaking project in Washington D.C.
The benefit will be held inside the picturesque Hunterdon Art Museum, a former 19th century stone mill overlooking the Raritan River and Waterfall. Unique, gourmet foods will be served, inclusive of dessert. We will also have an incredible silent auction full of tantalizing items up for bid to benefit Frontline Arts’ programming, an interactive wine pull full of an array of lovely wines, and spoken word storytelling to saturate our minds. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to our highly collaborative story creation this evening, where on the large pages of our handmade and bound paper, you will be asked to contribute to the narrative of characters throughout the evening, creating a community story, bound by creation and full of adventure!
The indoor museum space will also be available for full private viewing of three floors of exhibitions, including:
Cliff Lee: ceramics on the first floor
Mia Brownell & Martin Kruck: painting and photography on the second floor
Holly Lee: jewelry on the second floor
Members’ exhibition on the third floor
