Art and History – Looking for Artists Who Love History

The Mr. Local History Project is launching a new program to preserve our local history. We are looking for any artists to interpret our local history boards to create memorable images of local history in the Somerset Hills area of northern Somerset County, New Jersey.

We are also looking for art teachers to consider a program where an entire art class works to create their own collection. Take a look and if you’re interested, drop us a line and we can connect to discuss.

Open to anyone who wants to help us preserve and promote local history.
