Hopewell Valley Stampede
And The Stampede moves on…
The Stampede exhibit is officially over, though some oxen will still graze in place until they find their way to new pastures, and a few will remain in their current locations on the grounds of their sponsors. It seems like just yesterday the excitement began with a herd of beautiful oxen spreading out through the Valley to welcome everyone home from their summer travels. Sadly, all wonderful things do come to an end. We’d like to thank all the online auction bidders. The final tally was $73,581! This money, along with the funds raised at the ‘Ox’tion Gala in January, will be used to fund future Arts Council programs and exhibitions.
Arts Council recognized on December 8
On December 8, the Hopewell Township Parks & Recreation Department will host their annual Community Tree Lighting Ceremony to celebrate our community spirit. This year they have chosen the Hopewell Valley Arts Council as their Guests of Honor. Come by and join in the Tree Lighting, enjoy refreshments, and pick up a copy of the Stampede Book!
Still want to own an ox? After a straggler joined the herd, eleven special oxen have been selected for the Year of the Ox live auction and gala to be held at Grounds for Sculpture on January 24, 2015. Stay tuned to learn where this herd will reside until the ‘Ox’tion takes place. Not sure what you would do with one? Here are some suggestions.
