The Awakening by Seward Johnson

Seward Johnson | Celebrating the Everyday
A year-long celebration of Seward Johnson’s amazing life and the things that he loved

It is always a joy to support and attend one of the HVAC events. One of the favorites is their Annual Pumpkin Carve. The creativity of the artists and the innovative thinking skills of Carol and her team allowed for a “drive thru” Pumpkin Carve last year. It was exactly what the community needed to get people out of their homes (safely) and bring some much needed laughter to both children and adults.
— Lisa Freeman, Foundation Board Member, Robert Wood Johnson- Hamilton

Hopewell Valley Arts Council is incredible — offering programs for everyone in the community and surrounding area from the youngest to those who are older. Their programs and offerings, from pumpkin carving, lectures, arts shows at the community hospital engage both participating artists but all the individuals who simply want to look, study, and observe what “artists” do. Keep up the wonderful work.
— George Olexa & Terri Olexa, Member Artists

This program is made possible, in part, due to funds from Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders, and the State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Princeton Area Community Foundation.
