42 remarkable entries were reviewed by the jury, co-chaired by Danny Clinch, Brian Hanlon and Yvonne Yaar, who created a shortlist of the top three murals.

Finalists Elizabeth Paseler, Gregg Hinlicky and Carolyn Travisano’s work was then displayed at The

River Market Restaurant, The Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library, The Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts at Ocean County College and Community Medical Center.  The community was invited to vote for their favorite mural on The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation’s website www.jayandlindagruninfoundation.org.

The community voted over 5000 times with less than 300 votes separating first and third places.

Jeremy Grunin, Executive Director of The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation stated, “The Engage Toms River Community Mural Project is community in every sense of the word.  Elizabeth’s design will be turned into a “paint by numbers” canvas allowing every visitor to the Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library the opportunity to paint the mural.  We are looking forward to a very busy and artistic spring!”

Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher stated, "I am optimistic that the Grunin Foundation's attention and devotion to the arts will result in Toms River becoming a center for the arts in Ocean County."

Councilman Al Manforti stated, “I am looking forward to painting the mural myself at our library and seeing Toms River’s artistic talents unveiled at the Downtown Toms River Harvest Festival.”

Jay Grunin, Founder of the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation stated, “Linda and I are very happy with the community’s growing enthusiasm for our Engage Toms River programs.  We look forward to building on each success and announcing the next Engage Toms River program at the mural’s unveiling during the Toms River Harvest Festival.”
