Rain Barrel Art Project To Appear at Shore Festivals and Events

June 12th, 2014

In conjunction with this year’s Top Ten Beaches Survey, a unique and educational tie-in was launched: the Rain Barrel Art Project. In an effort to create public awareness around the use of rain barrels and the ways in which they help conserve water, we selected twelve New Jersey artists to paint a barrel with an iconic Jersey Shore scene. The result was a beautiful, creative, and stunning display. View the rain barrels here.  Now we’re rolling them out at shore area events and festivals.

The Rain Barrel Art Project will be on display at the locations below and will also be on display at our Sandy Hook headquarters. If you make a day trip to the Hook, feel free to stop by and take a look (we’re located at 22 Magruder Road, Fort Hancock.)
