BEST QUOTES

“However you classify it, Wonder is exciting not least because it represents the Kabakovs? first public art commission in the US. Their contribution is “Devil?s Rage,” a large pirate ship that Fung explained represents greed, in reference to the nearby casinos and gambling, but also a journey, a “rising ship” in the process of being discovered. Smith contribued “Her,” a life-size version of a bronze sculpture in the artist?s personal garden, which shows a woman hugging a deer; at Artlantic, the sculpture is surrounded by an all red garden, which, according to Fung, Smith has wanted to create for a while, in honor of her sister who died of AIDS. Barry?s installation consists of brightly colored, illuminated words, which relate to the “cacophony of signage” in Atlantic City, and Roloff, whom Fung called an “unsung hero in the art world,” was given a whole site on which to make “Étude Atlantis,” an installation of spiraling, black, white, and gray lines that will host performances and public events.” — A New Home for Art in Atlantic City, Hyperallergic, by Jillian Steinhauer, December, 11, 2012

“These days, America’s biggest art fair injects the city with an estimated $500-million economic boost each year, making it perhaps the most salient model of how art can nourish a weak economy. Other blighted cities have taken note: Detroit and Buffalo have both invested big in the arts in recent years, and, earlier this month, Atlantic City launched a $3-million public art initiative, part of a larger plan to cultivate arts tourism.” — Miami’s Art Gamble Has Paid Off — Can Atlantic City Follow Suit?, Art Info, by Rachel Corbett, November 27, 2012

“Artlantic was conceived by the Atlantic City Alliance as a way to make the gambling center more family-friendly and diverse in its attractions, taking its cue from Las Vegas’ own makeover of the past couple of decades.” — Artlantic City: Taking a gamble on a public exhibition instead of casinos, Star Ledger, by Dan Bischoff, November 11, 2012

Ted Loos writes that the project “is attempting to transform a city that has never offered much in the way of public space beyond the famous Boardwalk.” — Hurricane Spares Seaside Art, New York Times, by Ted Loos, November 5, 2012
