2021 Progams

ReOpen Asbury Park

APAC supported the city’s ReOPEN Asbury Park program that saw much of the Cookman Avenue corridor shut down to vehicular traffic in the summer to encourage a pedestrian friendly experience with businesses extended onto the sidewalks with retail and dining options. The Asbury Park Music Foundation programmed live music on the 700 Block of Cookman Avenue on Friday and Sunday evenings throughout the summer. In late May, as part of ReOPEN, the city hosted a Mural Art Project that saw thirteen artists paint on temporary walls along Cookman Avenue and in Springwood Park. The Summer 2021 Mural Art Project was funded by the City of Asbury Park and Monmouth Arts. APAC worked with the city on the promotion of project. When Cookman Avenue was opened to vehicle traffic, the murals that had been placed here were relocated to other public spaces in the city.
