When most people think of the shore, thoughts of sunny days, beach umbrellas and sandy beaches come to mind. For others, there is a trace of horror. Inspired by local history and lore from the late 1800s and early 1900s, GraveyardAtlantic brings to Asbury Park a series of hand drawn artwork that comes out of a time where people used to die in the Atlantic. Mixed with the artists' background of comics and horror movies, viewers will get to see a portrayal of ideas that stem from the ocean through story and illustration. Take these historic and morbid angles and intertwine them with the lifestyle of East Coast Surfing, and you have one unique art show.

On Saturday May 7th, Asbury Park's first Saturday will mark the opening of the GraveYardAtlantic art show at the Bands on a Budget storefront, located at 630 Mattison Ave in downtown Asbury Park. The event begins at 7pm, is all ages, and has no admission fee. Live music TBA.
