I enjoy documenting special events in my area for The Register News. Here in Bordentown, we have a City Hall that is fondly called, Old City Hall. It is a large brick building with a clock town and is located on Crosswicks St.
It is being refurbished and at this event, many chairs that were found in the building were originally in Clara Barton’s school. So different artists came forward to create something special and the money that came from auctioning the chairs off went directly to bring back Old City Hall to it’s “ole’ self” again.Some of these images were published in The Register News, one of the many papers published by http://www.centraljersey.com.
