"OPEN THE DOOR to make BelmarArts" ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE!
The BelmarArts is housed in the Boatworks, a vibrant, mural-covered art center created by our members from a derelict boat engine repair shop. In a matter of months after the Borough of Belmar invited BelmarArts to use the building, volunteers transformed it, cleaning, putting up sheetrock, and painting walls and floors. A 500 square foot addition was completed in early 2011. BelmarArts’ Boatworks was one of the many buildings within the Borough that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy. New wall board replaced that damaged by flood waters, floors were scrubbed, walls painted, equipment cleaned or replaced. The last item that needs to be replaced is our front door! We love to install an automated opening system that would provide excellent access to our Gallery, performances and workshops for all of our many vistors with disabilities or hands full of artwork!
