Thank you Jean!

Jean Murphy
The May Art Exhibit at the Princeton Center was a celebration of the arts. Most noteworthy was the honoring of Jean Murphy for her years of service and expertise in displaying the art at the Princeton center. Jean created the themes over the years and put the call out to artists, coordinated and hosted with grace and love. There's no better way to describe Jean, she dedicated her time simply because of the love of art and fellow artists. Thank you Jean!
