Started as a project to improve Atlantic City's public image, the city's five year project to convert seven unused acres of land into large scale art projects will soon be open to the public. Intended to “improve the cultural experience” of the city, developers hope it will attract visitors and convince the public that the damage from Sandy was not as extensive as is generally believed.

"ARTLANTIC: wonder" — a five-year, $3 million project unfolding on more than seven acres of empty lots in AC — includes a replica of a sunken pirate ship, which safely started being installed after Hurricane Sandy hit. It's due to open to the public Dec. 1.

Works close to completion include a contemporary stage-like installation where performances can be held. It will open perhaps as soon as this weekend. The project is under the guidance of Lance Fung of Fung Collaboratives and includes lots of cutting-edge artists.
