PAST SHOWS

“Paper Mill is surrounded by a vibrant arts community. We are thrilled to spotlight local visual artists and engage lovers of the arts with their work,” says Mike Stotts. “We hope that our audiences love it and the artists benefit from the exposure we will be able to provide.” “Visual art is part of Paper Mill’s history,” adds Mark Hoebee. “Antoinette Scudder, one of Paper Mill’s original founders and a visual arts lover, insisted that a gallery be included when the original design was created for the theater in 1934, and local artists hung their work when the theater opened in 1938. It’s a part of who we are that is sometimes forgotten. We welcome it back now with a renewed commitment.
