All five food and beverage sponsors for Full Circle 2012: Unexpected Art, the annual celebration of the Matheny Medical and Educational's Arts Access Program, originally scheduled for Saturday, November 3, are planning to donate food and beverages to Full Circle on its new date, Saturday, December 1. All of them lost business due to sustained power outages during Hurricane Sandy.
Everyone at Matheny and Arts Access is appreciative of their incredible generosity. The sponsors are: Cafe Azzurro and cocoLuxe fine pastries, Peapack; Gladstone Tavern, Gladstone; 3 West, Basking Ridge; and Village Office Supply, Somerset.
Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility in Peapack for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities. Arts Access makes it possible for people with disabilities to create fine art, assisted by professional artist-facilitators. Full Circle will be held from 3-6 p.m. in the Robert Schonhorn Arts Center at Matheny. A fine art exhibit and stage performance will feature all original works by Arts Access artists in painting, digital art, sculpture, drama, dance and creative writing.
To purchase tickets, call (908) 234-0011, ext. 260, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To purchase tickets online, click on https://events.matheny.org/FullCircle2012. If you have already paid for tickets, the registration will be applied to the new date.

Full Circle will honor the life and memory of Robert Schonhorn, the late Matheny president whose vision and love of the arts brought this groundbreaking program into prominence on a state and national level. Matheny will be donating 50% of all proceeds from the sale of Arts Access merchandise to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
