A Community's Journey: Our Place in New Jersey's History
This exhibit is designed to create an awareness and understanding of our community’s past and present attitudes towards and acceptance of diversity, to celebrate innovations in the performing arts, and to honor those who fought for liberty. Using the themes of diversity, innovation and liberty in relation to our community’s journey through the last three centuries, we join with historical societies across New Jersey to commemorate New Jersey’s 350th anniversary.
Designed by Sheila Brogan, Bari Falese, Vicky Herbert, and Roberta Sonenfeld
