Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven: Princeton Paintings by James McPhillips

“Having worked for McCarter Theatre, I gained an appreciation for Princeton’s people, architecture, university and businesses. All of which have been natural inspiration for my paintings and even my graphic work like the Prince-TON art. After McCarter, I partnered with jane shop (7 Spring St.) to showcase my Princeton work and beyond (currently a Paris series). I am grateful, honored and thrilled that Arts Council of Princeton and The Princeton Public Library asked me to share these pieces for the launch of the second floor renovation.”
