Chatham High School Art Students Are Inspired!

With AP exams out of the way, eight Chatham High School senior art students are creating two unique photo opportunities for the Chatham Historical Society. These displays will be located at Railroad Plaza South during the Tricentennial celebration of Chatham held June 13, 2015 in conjunction with the annual Fishawack Festival.

The art students are creating two fun face-in-the-hole boards. As inspiration, the artists are using Victorian era photographs taken in Chatham. You won’t want to miss seeing these fabulous creations and encourage friends and family to try it out while you snap their photo!

Under the direction of AP Studio Art teacher Eric Hreha, seniors Hailey Brock, Melissa Danitz, Ingrid Hoernner, Austin Huffman, Christine Inzerillo, Catie Maguire, Taylor Maloney, and Laura Walsh have taken 5x7 black and white photographs and created life-size painted pictures upon pieces of plywood.

Additionally, the Chatham Historical Society is encouraging everyone to get into the spirit of celebration and enter its Selfiemania contest, starting now! Tag your selfie to #Chatham300Years on Instagram for a chance to win one of three $100 Visa Gift cards. Enter as many times as you want just remember that all photos must be taken in Chatham, New Jersey and must be appropriate to be viewed by all ages. The contest will run through June 14th, 2015 and winners will be notified via Instagram messenger the week of June 15, 2015. Three gift cards will be awarded to the winner of each of these three categories: Funniest Selfie; Best Chatham Spirit Selfie and Best Group Selfie.

It is probably safe to say that any resident of Chatham today will be familiar with the electric trains of New Jersey Transit that speed commuters to and from the city every day. Many Borough residents may not be aware that Chatham was at one time served by another form of electric railway - a trolley line that arrived, thrived, and died before the first electric train on the Morris & Essex Lines even ran.
