The Arts are Alive and Well in Maplewood

First annual Maplewood Art Walk was a huge hit.

The first annual  on Saturday was a resounding success, to judge from the enthusiastic crowds that descended on the Village throughout the day. There were live performances of music, dance and theater in Ricalton Square. Scores of artists displayed and sold their work on Baker Street and Highland Place, both of which were closed to traffic.  

Kids got in the action by helping to paint a mural. Local restaurants offered specials and there were pop-up outdoor cafes at and . Representatives from Maplewood's and South Orange's many cultural and civic organizations were on hand to give out information.

There was even a flashdance mob -- video to come. The event was co-sponsored by the  (MVA) and the  (MAC).

Check out the photos.

Great picture of the mural, Carolyn! I was there too early when it was sparsely painted. Wonderful to see the near-finished product!

Mary, that photo (and many of the others) was courtesy of Julie Doran. The mural did look terrific toward the end of the day!
