The Superstorm Sandy-inspired “Just Beachy/After Sandy” art exhibition at Monmouth University’s DiMattio Gallery received heavy media attention in the lead-up to the seventh anniversary of the storm’s landfall in New Jersey on Oct. 29. To commemorate the occasion, Monmouth University Professor Karen Bright held a reading of Sandy stories posted to the exhibition’s “9 Feet High” wall.
“Just Beachy/After Sandy” will remain open for public viewing through Dec. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. Funding for the installation was provided in part by the UCI.
