A free shuttle bus will make the rounds to all six exhibits throughout the entire evening and the Hyatt’s Eclectic Grill will once again offer a prix fixe ($25) dinner for hungry gallery goers!
“The mission of Art Around the Park is pure and simple: create a reputation for Morristown as an art destination,” said Harry Simon, owner of the Simon Gallery on Bank Street.
