Roselle Park Remembers the Shore Before Hurricane Sandy

Through October 11, 2013

Reception to meet the artists September 18, 2013 6:00 – 7:30 PM

 This group exhibit displays artwork depicting the days before the Jersey shore was torn apart. They hark back to the days of old-fashioned boardwalks, huge dunes, and of course, the various play lands built over the sand. All of which are now sandcastles of our dreams! So come on in and enjoy a walk along the shore as it used to be and as it was captured by these 7 artists.

The follow Roselle Park residents have contributed to this exhibit:
