ABOUT THE PROJECT
Denville’s second annual public art installation, “PAL Around Denville,” will come to the Gardner Field playground and throughout downtown Denville during the months of June-August 2018. Hosted by Project Playground 2.0 and the PAL, all proceeds will help update the playground at our beloved Gardner Field in Denville, NJ.
Starting in February 2018, 3.5 foot tall plywood cutouts of the cute figures, or Pals, that make up the Project Playground 2.0 logo will be available for adoption for $100. Artists will have four months to create their artwork on the wood forms which will be hung along the fencing surrounding the playground at a “Party at the Playground” taking place on June 2, 2018 from 4-7pm.
NEW THIS YEAR:
- Because we have to close the playground in July for demolition and prep for the new structures the Pals will be on display for the month of June, and you have the option to either grab yours for the rest of the summer or allow us to store them
- We will REDISPLAY the Pals for the dedication of the new playground in September—great photo op!
- Kids can get in on the action by signing up for our painting party during the Party at the Playground on June 2 from 4-7 for $25. We will prep the Pal of your choice and have painting supplies on hand. Once painted, the Pal goes right on the fence!
Consider your “canvas” a great opportunity to show the support of your family, organization or business—we encourage you to include your name/logo within your artwork! We also welcome sponsors that would like to adopt a Pal but have their design ideas executed by a local artist.
