Live at the Ferry Slip Original Music Series

Perth Amboy Artworks Live at the Ferry Slip Music Series is going into its fourth season.  We transform the Historic Perth Amboy Ferry Slip into a live music venue directly on the water with beautiful views of Raritan Bay. The 2019 lineup features exciting local & regional bands and singer/ songwriters.

Murals

Nautical Abstractions: Perth Amboy by the Sea 650ft Waterfront Walk Mural by Perth Amboy Artist Kerry Dyke sponsored by Perth Amboy Artworks.

Perth Amboy Artworks sponsors murals to add vibrancy to Perth Amboy.  In August 2016, Perth Amboy Artworks sponsored a 650 ft. mural created by a local Perth Amboy artist to cover a blank wall and complete the beautification of the public walkway that had deteriorated due to Superstorm Sandy.

We are also working on a collaboration with the City of Perth Amboy for a Catch Basin Murals Project, where artists paint murals on the catch basins to raise awareness about keeping them clean to protect the environment and stop litter and debris from entering our stormwater infrastructure and waterways.
