SICA, The Shore Institute of the Contemporary Arts, is seeking images generated from your cell phone for a series of exhibitions called “Phoned-In!”.  The only requirement is that they be original, unretouched photographs taken by you on your camera-phone and emailed directly to us at PhonedIn@sica.org.

Just select some of the photos you’ve taken on your phone or snap a new photo on your phone and email it to us! It’s that simple.  We will reply with a link for you to remit your entry fee.

We’ve been radio silent for a little while, but it’s only because we’ve been busy preparing for our next show!  We’re very excited to be able to unveil it to you all this weekend!

Getting out in the sun this weekend? Why not stop by and check out Jason Roth’s “Blown”? Roth’s sculpture is on display outside Asbury Park’s City Hall as part of Sculptoure, SICA’s sixth annual ‘urban sculpture park,” from now until September 16th.

Jasper Johns, Three Flags, 1958 

While Johns’ work is generally considered to be Neo-Dadaist, he is often identified as a Pop artist due to his use of classic iconic imagery, as seen above.  Johns often utilized the well-known images as they neutralized the need for a subject matter and he could present simple objects as entirely new.
Happy Independence Day!

Today’s image is Michko Rupnow’s “Entangle,” currently on-view near the corner of Ocean and Asbury Ave. Rupnow’s piece, constructed from aluminum and steel, is currently on view as part of Sculptoure, our sixth-annual ‘urban sculpture park,’ with sites located throughout both Asbury Park and Long Branch. (Installed until September 16th.) Now that the weather seems to have made up its mind, why not take a stroll and check it out?
