MONET STATUE ‘UNVEILING’
September 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us at Washington Crossing State Park as we (belatedly) welcome “Monet,” who, through the magic of the Johnson Atelier, is painting his own version of Washington Crossing the Delaware at the site of the historic event!
The event will include ceremonial unveiling and musket firing. Festivities will feature a short discussion by Park historian Mark Sirak on the many artistic representations of the historic crossing over the years, including the Park’s famous George Harding mural.
The Hopewell Valley Arts Council will feature a live demonstration of plein air painting with local artist Barbara DiLorenzo, and the WCPA will be serving free gingerbread cookies and iced chai lattes flavored with native spicebush foraged from Park grounds.
