The Moorsetown Nippers

A Virtual Art Exhibit Featuring the 2005 Moorsetown Nippers

 

 

 

 

 

This gallery features works of art created for the Nipper 2005 public art project in Moorestown, New Jersey.

This Nipper festival featured 30 five foot high fiberglass Nipper statues, decorated by artists supported by various sponsors (see below).

Five Moorestown partners: The Evergreens, Historical Society of Moorestown, Lutheran Home at Moorestown, Moorestown Community House and Perkins Center for the Arts were responsible for bringing Nipper 2005 to Moorestown.

All "Nippers"were sold at auction in October 2005 as a local fund-raiser.

According to the Nipper 2005 website, Eldridge Johnson, the founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company and acquirer of the "Nipper" trademark, moved his family in 1919 "to a small estate on East Main Street in Moorestown...Mr. Johnson lived in the house until his death in November 1945."

Thus, the connection between Moorestown and Nipper.
