Tuesday Newsday: When history comes to life!

We are excited to announce our new project between Liberty Hall and the Robert Busch School of Design at Kean University (RBSD)!   We are doing a Keanlift campaign to raise money to help purchase a higher quality 360-degree video camera, the GoPro Omni. Also, we hope to extend this campaign to enrich the project with stretch goals to include virtual reality viewing devices, renting props and clothing if needed.

The ultimate goal of this Keanlift campaign is to use this new camera to reenact the marriage of John Jay and Sarah Livingston through the use of 360-degree video. The reenactment would be easily accessible online and on mobile devices.  This will be the first of hopefully many projects of this kind! Going forward we would love to reenact other momentous occasions that took place at Liberty Hall.

We are excited at the prospect of the reenactment of the wedding between John Jay and Sarah Livingston which took place in the Great Hall on April 28, 1774.  As you know, we love a good wedding! Our hope is to have the reenactment take place on their 243rd anniversary, in the Great Hall.  Save the date!

Please take a minute to watch the Keanlift video which features the students who will be working on this project.  We hope this video encourages you to want to be part of this historic wedding by donating to the project.  Who wouldn’t want to be “Livingston VIP” at the wedding of the century?!
