Earlier this year, the Greenville Fire House contacted ProArts (local arts organization) to have artists design a mural for their kitchen table. Artists Eileen Ferara, Jaz Graf and Rebecca Sullivan banded forces to manifest the ideas of the firefighters, who wanted to incorporate on the mural: their firehouse built in 1910, some old firetrucks from that time, their 2 fire trucks today - Engine 19 & Ladder 8, World Trade Center Memorial Lights, the Statue of Liberty, classic Jersey City brownstones, their firehouse patch and a tribute to Roosevelt Lanes. (This table-top is a reclaimed bowling lane from recently demolished Roosevelt Lanes in Jersey City.) The legs of the table will be made from old fire hydrants. Funds raised will go towards materials, labor and transport. (we are painting the table in a warehouse!) Our goal of $800 is modest; even if we exceed this goal, our donations will go towards this project. All donations are tax-deductible because ProArts is a 501(c)3 arts organization. We are proud to work on this project for the Greenville Fire Department, a dedicated team of individuals who are committed to serving our local community. It is our hope that it will be a place where people come together to swap stories, laugh, eat, drink and pass along their kitchen table wisdom. Many thanks to people who helped paint, toil and sweat over this project with us, we are truly grateful.
