Asbury Park Boardwalk Commissions Unique Painting

While summer looks a little different this year, the Jersey Shore is always looking to the future! Last month, the Asbury Park Boardwalk commissioned a unique painting from internationally-acclaimed artist Ed Fairburn to beautify their beach.

A central hub for the local arts community, the Asbury Park Boardwalk is 320,000 square feet of uniquely-Garden State shopping and dining. The Boardwalk hopes to reflect upon its rich culture with its Wooden Walls project, a public art initiative.

Fairburn, a multi-media artist from the UK, incorporates maps and topography into his art in creative, exciting ways. His planned painting for the Boardwalk blends the human form with the beauty of Asbury Park.

“Asbury Park itself is the embodiment of the arts, so a piece like this is a compelling representation of this gorgeous setting,” says Pasqualina DeBoer, the Boardwalk’s Marketing Director. “Having the portrait created atop a map of the Asbury Park shoreline conveys a sense of place and connectedness to the global art community.”

Fairburn and the Boardwalk’s administration hope to unveil the piece publicly in 2020, including a large-scale print.
