We have posted other examples of wall art in A. Park going back a few years.  It is a wonderful idea, bringing color and imagination into public spaces for all to enjoy.

Here is a link to an example from 2015:

There seems to be a fondness for spontaneous art appearing throughout the hip city of Asbury Park.  You can see it on walls in the Casino, on the boardwalk and around the artsy neighborhood of Cookman Avenue and its side-streets–even painted on windows and doorways.  Art is especially beautiful when it is part of the everyday life of the people.

It reminds me of the work of Seward Johnson, the sculptor of ordinary folks, whose work is often found in public places:

Ocean Grove can use some public art to liven up the place. The town has no significant outdoors art displays for the public to enjoy.  It is wonderful when one can walk down a street and come across an art show of some sort, and Asbury seems committed to bringing their city to life with art.
