The Sept. 8th event has reached full capacity!
Hunterdon Art Museum invites homeschoolers to a one-of-a-kind event where you can contribute to the creation of the 90-foot Wild Ride mural being constructed on HAM’s Terrace. Under the guidance of artist Phillip Adams, participants will have the chance to paint sections of the mural using a paint-by-numbers system. Open to students aged 5-16. **This event is dependent on weather**
Phillip’s mural is inspired by the South Branch of the Raritan River, flowing directly behind the terrace’s retention wall and former chalkboard. This composition creates an optical illusion of the river, painting it as it flows south away from the Museum. The mural symbolizes healing, rebirth, power, and life, and connects to deeper ideas about creativity, curiosity, and wonder.
The mural features origami boats floating downstream, each colored according to the spectrum of the rainbow. These boats serve as symbols of creativity, also representing the art programs held by HAM for the past 70 years.
