Jed Morfit’s ArtLantic

Earlier this year, I visited the awesome ArtLantic public art project in the East Coast gambling capital, Atlantic City. It is already mostly underway, but more pieces are going to be added before its “official” opening. Local artist Jed Morfit first came onto my radar at an art fair a few years ago, and I’m excited to see his contribution to the ArtLantic project- these intricate chairs and benches that are packed with his signature detailed carvings. The organized chaos culminates at a “water line,” which references the recent Hurricane Sandy flooding that took put much of the Jersey Shore. How awesome is that??
