An artist, muralist, illustrator, and graphic designer for more than 20 years, Madison New Jersey-based Dan Fenelon has been selected as this year's Metuchen Junebug ArtFest sculptor and is tasked with the job of putting his own spin on a Junebug for this exciting tri-state area art festival.
Trained at NY's Art Students' League and at Boston's Museum School of Fine Arts, Dan is already hard at work on a large wooden sculpture (8 feet tall x 4 feet wide) that will be painted in his signature vibrant, muralist style. ArtFest visitors will literally be able to stand inside the creation and become a Junebug. The sculpture will be unveiled on Saturday evening June 3rd at 7:00 pm, in front of the Metuchen Savings bank on Main Street.

“The Development Commission worked diligently for years to help improve Metuchen, but there was no framework and no funding to do what the Metuchen Downtown Alliance [MDA] is doing now so in a sense this ordinance is a testament to their success,” said Councilwoman Allison Inserro.
