The Five Pipes Are Open

After painting all summer in the muggy, buggy heat lead artist Eduardo Alexander Rabel, the students of Thomas Jefferson Middle School, and community volunteers both young and old, are proud to present the final product of hundreds of hours of creative artistry.

On October 21st we celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony officiated by County Executive Dennis McNerney.

“This unique artistic project involved the transformation and beautification of five graffiti covered storm pipes that had been abandoned in the 1960’s on what is now the 46 acre Teaneck Creek Conservancy in Teaneck, NJ. The murals painted on the pipes are educational in nature, addressing the theme of human relationship to nature throughout different eras in local history.” Lead Artist, Eduardo Alexander Rabel.
