Art Along the Fence, a community beautification project curated by the city and Toll Brothers City Living, a luxury developer, was unveiled last week at multiple construction sides in uptown Hoboken. Several works of art by Hoboken artists and pieces inspired by the city have been hung on the fences around various Toll Brothers projects.
For the most part, the artwork will be on display on fences around Toll Brothers’ newest condominium building, 1100 Maxwell Place, which opened last month and is part of the larger Maxwell Place development, between 11th and 12th Streets on the Hudson River waterfront.
The artwork was selected by the city.
“I am so pleased to be here to celebrate the work of these great local artists,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer, who cut a ribbon to open the exhibit and then toured the exhibit accompanied by eight of the artists.
Mayor Zimmer thanked Administrator of Cultural Affairs Geraldine Fallo, and Vice President of Toll Brothers City Living Henry L. Waller for spearheading the project.
“Toll Brothers is delighted to be building 1100 Maxwell in Hoboken not only because of the access to a beautiful waterfront, lively shopping, restaurants, and nightlife, but also because Hoboken hosts a vibrant community of artists,” said Waller. “Art Along the Fence vividly illuminates a quality of Hoboken which plays a large part in the decision of our residents to live at Maxwell Place and experience the great lifestyle this city has to offer.”
Participating artists include Alina Bliach, Steve Berrebi, Joe Borzotta, Steve Chopek, Laura Bochet, Ocean Clark, Joe Corrado, Bill Curran, Tim Daly, Tom Egan, Louise Gale, Jennifer Krause, Claudia Kreiss, Teresa Kruszewski, Jean Paul Picard, Jackie Post, Laura Renee Myerson, Ricardo Roig, Roslyn Rose, McKevin Shaughnessy, and Mark Venaglia.
