Paradox visits the Library
The Pennington Public Library is excited to welcome Paradox, one of Hopewell Valley Arts Council's "stampede" of decorated fiberglass oxen. Paradox, designed by artist Andrew Wilkinson, is one of over 65 oxen displayed throughout Hopewell Township.
The ox was chosen as a symbol of the area's farm heritage. To celebrate Paradox's arrival, children grades K-5 are invited to "design" their own ox. Prizes awarded. Stay tuned for an entry form available here or at the library.
