Tie The Knot!
Handfasting is a beautiful, symbolic marriage ceremony, or ritual, and is believed to span several cultures dating back thousands of years. Handfasting is widely accepted as being of ancient Celtic origin and is a nature-related ritual with a spiritual tradition.
The phrase ‘tying the knot!’ and the action of shaking someone’s hand to agree on something, are probably derived from this action of binding the couples hands together, often with coloured ribbon or cord to symbolise their union of love.

Faces of Bayonne
The intention of the Faces of Bayonne was to illustrate that Bayonne is a melting pot of people representing a wide variety of cultures from around the world and that we could build a sense of community through our shared experiences. The visual presentation highlighted how similar our experiences have been over the decades... The ultimate goal was to bringing our community together.
The portraits highlighted the diversity of the Bayonne Community. These are the FACES of Bayonne!
To see all of the portraits featured in the Faces of Bayonne public art project visit The Faces of Bayonne/Inside out project webpage.

Bayonne Bridge Photographic Mural at Dennis P. Collins Park
In 2017 Stephanie Petersen was asked to be a part of the improvements at Bayonne's Dennis P. Collins Park at 1st Street. She was asked to cover an ordinary building used for the park's restrooms with an unordinary photographic mural of vintage photographs of the Bayonne bridge. The mural is an unexpected surprise for visitors of the park adding some art into a public space.
Due to a recent auto accident that damaged both the mural and nearby exercise equipment this project will now be getting a much needed facelift! Stay tuned for updates regarding the upcoming renovation due to take place June 2021!
