“Artlantic” Art Parks bring world-class artists to public spaces
Atlantic City’s art parks
host some of the city’s most breathtaking and engaging pieces in a public, outdoor space for all to enjoy. These works of art complement and interact with the landscape and bring a refreshing sense of culture to the city. The art parks are part of a larger arts movement in Atlantic City, deemed “Artlantic,” in which empty lots -- true blank canvases -- are converted by artists into fun and interactive art parks for all to enjoy. Each park features works from both local and international artists.
Curated by Lance Fung Collaboratives, there are currently two Artlantic displays that feature collaborative efforts from Robert Barry, Peter Hutchinson, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Robert Lach, Jedidiah Morfit, John Roloff and Kiki Smith. Visit the first of the art parks near the Boardwalk between Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Indiana Avenue and the second site on the Boardwalk at California Avenue.
