LITTLE SILVER GETS FALL MAKEOVER FROM RBR

taylor-6317177Taylor Cuozzo of Little Silver, an art major at Red Bank Regional’s Visual and Performing Arts Academy, is shown painting a giant pumpkin on the window of Groomingdales’ pet salon in Little Silver. Her entire class participated in the day-long window-painting event for the fall season in collaboration with the Little Silver Business and Professional Association.

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Every fall, Red Bank Regional High School Visual and Performing Arts Academy teacher Claudia O’Connor and Ye Old Pie Shoppe Owner Eileen Caruso coordinate their annual window painting project in downtown Little Silver. Nearly a dozen businesses participate in the project that results in clever windowscapes of pumpkin patches, and graveyard themes.

The students plan and execute their designs, which Mrs. O’Connor oversees and approves. The event takes an entire school day, with the students taking breaks for snacks and lunch appreciatively provided by the business owners whose windows they are adorning.

The custom was originated by Barbara Murray, a former art teacher at the borough’s former Markham Place School, more than a decade ago — and has since folded in the participation of students on the high school level.

According to Eileen Caruso, “The Little Silver Business and Professional Association had asked to add the high school, and we have been coordinating every since. We love it. It makes the town livelier. Our customers and business owners comment on how really nice this tradition has become.”

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
