Reminiscing: Downtown Toms River 2015 Community Mural Project
We were feeling nostalgic today and started reminiscing about our 2015 Engage Toms River Community Mural Project. In early Spring of 2015, we put out a call to all local artists to design a mural that would be installed on the wall of 207 Main Street, at the entrance into Downtown Toms River. Elizabeth Paseler‘s design was ultimately picked and made into the larger-than-life mural. Be sure to stop by next time you are downtown to see this beautiful mural in person.
Liz put his mural into beautiful words with her poem:
A charming glance at downtown life,
As seen thru a dreamer’s eye.
At 1st, one dimension is a lie,
Then…a new horizon line.
Is this sunrise or day’s end,
Is this now or is this then?
Eventually you begin to see,
Many neighbors in this tree.
Each quick and distant glance,
Becomes and engaging chance
For ideas of Toms River to enhance….
