Princeton’s Communiversity happened on a beautiful April weekend this year. I sketched this while sitting outside of Holder Hall, where I lived last year, looking ahead of me onto Nassau Street.
The event brought more life and energy to Princeton township than I have ever seen before. As someone who has grown up in suburban NJ, my definition of a “crowd” in Princeton would be a longer-than-usual weeknight line at the Bent Spoon.
Communiversity, however, had music and people spilling out from the town’s seams. I felt like I was doing my AP Studio Art concentration looking at the crowds going up the streets to Nassau Hall. Food vendors were at every street corner, as were (a surprising) number of private schools vying for parental attention.
