By the Hopewell Valley Regional School District on January 20,2024
We are very pleased to share the news that student artwork from the 2022 and 2023 Witness Stones Project is now on display at the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Gallery on the first floor of the county administration building (20 Grove Street in Somerville). This is an exhibit of the student art created to honor Friday Truehart and Frost Blackwell, which is now part of the Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum collection, and will run through the month of February.
HERE is the link to the HVRSD website where you can still view copies of the student artwork in the ceremony programs.
As a school district and community, we are very proud of our students and how their artistic expression is on display in another region in NJ. We are looking forward to this year’s Witness Stones ceremony at the Howell Living Farm honoring the life of the enslaved individual Nance.
