Mountain Lakes will host its 2nd annual open-air art show on Sunday, June 2nd from 11am – 5 pm at the base of Esplanade Park on Elm Street (just across the train tracks from The Station restaurant).  Visitors will stroll the tree-lined heart of the borough, where more than 55 emerging artists will feature original paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, photography, and more.  All art will be available for sale.  Art at the Esplanade will also feature children’s art activities coordinated by the Mountain Lakes Library. And once again, musicians from Bach to Rock in Denville will fill the air with music.  The event has attracted the generous sponsorship of the Roberts Fund of the Mountain Lakes Library, whose goal is to encourage a culture of art appreciation throughout the community.
