Millwheels Rolling into Millburn

Millburn Township’s CEDA—Cultural Engagement Diversity and Arts Committee invites you to join us in an inclusive Community Engagement Art Project celebrating our mill town past and our vibrant present. “Millwheels Rolling into Millburn” will provide interested groups/organizations with the opportunity to participate in a unique project utilizing art to express our culturally diverse community. 

Learn how to use your imagination and creativity to submit a vision transforming a 35 inch wooden millwheel into a work of art that represents your organization!

There will be an active painting demonstration by artist Dan Fenelon, an opportunity to learn more about our exciting community art project and to view a community millwheel on display. Hands-on craft participation will be available for all ages. Refreshments will be served!

All township groups are encouraged to attend and participate in the kick-off event of Millburn’s first Community Public Art Project in Taylor Park. FINAL EVENT and presentation will be held on Saturday, September 7th (rain date Sunday, September 8th.)

For any additional questions: email CEDAinfo@millburntwp.org

History

Millburn began as a colonial settlement with agricultural origins, followed by a 19th century mill factory economy and eventually became a beautiful residential community. There are many examples of this rich history still present in the township---- the Parsil House, the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum, the Paper Mill Playhouse and the many beautiful homes from all phases of our history including our two historic districts---- Short Hills Park and Wyoming.
