On June 4, hundreds of people gathered for a Stand Up for What Matters/Black Lives Matter march down Clinton’s historic main street, in response to the death of George Floyd and national protests across the country.

Organized by North Hunterdon High School Seniors Brianna Cooks, Carleigh Harris, and Alex Macee, with the support of Clinton Mayor Janice Kovach and Town Council Members, the march aimed to bring the community together and spread a message of love, unity, and anti-racism.

The Hunterdon Art Museum invites interested parties to submit up to five images of protest signs/items that were displayed or worn (t-shirts or hats with slogans) during the Black Lives Matter march in the town of Clinton on Thursday, June 4, 2020.  Depending upon the number of submissions received, the items will potentially be part of a temporary exhibition at HAM. From the signs/items that are submitted the museum will select those that will be displayed.

This community project is open to all, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, marital status, sexual preference, gender identity, or disability.

Please email submissions to ellen@hunterdonartmuseum.org and include the following:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Up to five images of signs, t-shirts, or hats with slogans
The deadline for submissions is July 10th.
