Beach Theme Outdoor Wall Mural in Stone Harbor

Outdoor Wall Mural in Stone Harbor New Jersey
Every year we enjoy going down to the Jersey Shore and one of the places we like to visit is Stone Harbor in New Jersey. If you've never visited this seaside town, it's part of 7 mile island and shares the island with Avalon. Both of them have their own unique charm.

My husband and I are both fans of outdoor hand-painted wall murals and a few months ago we stumbled upon one that we had never seen before. I guess that's because it's painted on the backside of the Seashore Ace Hardware Store! I've been in the store several times, but have always entered through the front entrance.

Anyway, we were playing rooftop miniature golf nearby and spotted it during our game of golf. Once we were done, we head on over to the back of the store to check out the wall mural. It's quite large and takes up one entire side of the building and then wraps around in an L-SHAPE to the other wall that makes up the building. Hence, why I've got a few photographs to share.

It's a beautiful mural but does need some touch-up for sure. I was looking for an artist signature and date which is usually found on these large outdoor wall murals, but I couldn't find it. I'm guessing it's probably covered up with the business' supplies that are out there against the wall. Sigh.

If anyone who's reading this blog recognizes the mural and knows who the artist was, please leave me a comment so that I can add that information to our post or so that I can do some research on it. So far, my online research has come up empty.

Stone Harbor is a great place to visit and if you enjoy checking out hand-painted wall murals, you'll find this one on the back of the Seashore Ace Hardware Store located by the Stone Harbor water tower. It's pretty fabulous if you ask me! Love Jersey Shore wall murals? We've featured a lot of them here on our blog!
