Wooden billboards Absecon Blvd (ebook)
Absecon Blvd. runs into Atlantic City from the North across a large tidal wetland. It is a secondary route into the city for people who do not want to pay the toll charges on the Atlantic City expressway. The billboards along Absecon Blvd. advertisd the possibilities for food, lodging, entertainment, recreation and gambling available just up the road. Now many of the billboards are empty or in the process of being decommissioned. Stripped of their advertising panels, these billboards appear as sculptural wooden forms standing in stark contrast to the open tidal wetland. The unique wooden framework reflects a specific advertising artform.
