The Freehold Borough Arts Council (FBAC) has launched an online contest to continue their mission of inspiring, providing and championing the arts to build a greater cultural community.
Through Facebook, the FBAC has put together “Out and About Borough Art”, a fun and educational online contest. Envisioned by FBAC Board member Brian Sullivan and creatively named by FBAC Board member Samantha Daesener, the contest is an idea that highlights the art that surrounds borough residents.
The FBAC has manipulated approximately 10 photos of borough artwork to make them less recognizable, and will place these images on their Facebook page, one-a-week. The first Fan to correctly identify the work of art is rewarded with their choice of a Freehold Borough Arts Council magnet. Once the FBAC has a winner, they will then post the full name of the artwork and its description to help teach people about the rich history of the Freehold Borough. Joe Barris, current member and former Secretary of the FBAC, is generously providing the history of each borough art piece.
Through the contest, the FBAC hopes that members and viewers have both a fun and rewarding experiences by being apart of a friendly contest as well as become more involved in their community history and aware of the art that resides there.
