The Cardboard Art Show


In January 2023, artists Porkchop, Bradley Hoffer, and Jason Stumpf sequestered themselves in a studio with a large quantity of cardboard. They used this ubiquitous medium for an exercise in free-form and experimental creative play. The Cardboard Show is the result: a collection of large scale sculptures and forms in three distinct voices, united by medium, friendship, and a commitment to a playful approach to creating art for its own sake. Watch what happens when three local artists and friends take over a gallery to create a collaborative cardboard installation using 50+ sheets of cardboard, 300+ glue sticks and lots and lots of razor blades.

This documentary short goes behind-the-scenes to talk with the artists about this unique project, how it came about and the power of collaboration, creativity and friendship. Celebrate the Art of Cardboard.

Asbury Park: A Dreamer's Paradise

Recently Nancy and Mike had the chance to speak with noted author Helen Pike about Arts Vibrancy in Asbury Park. Helen has been researching, photographing and writing about Asbury Park for over a dozen years and has a comprehensive understanding of the city’s history, present and future. In our quest to investigate what qualities it takes to make a city “arts-centric”, we turned to Helen to give us some insights. As always when speaking with Helen, the conversation was enlightening and enjoyable.
