Macomber’s passion for surfing and the Jersey Shore permeates his artistic style, making him an ideal candidate for Morey's Piers Adventure Pier Container Art Project.

“We’re continuously striving to showcase the Wildwoods’ in unique, inventive and eco-friendly ways, and while others may want to shy away from graffiti as being taboo, we want to wrap our arms around the culture,” said Jack Morey, Executive Vice President of Morey’s Piers and Beachfront Waterparks.

 The whole concept of re-using prefabricated shipping containers has been championed for several years now by the eco and contemporary arts design communities. The original invention of shipping containers had birth in New Jersey out of a necessity to improve efficiency and cut down on theft.

With today’s overabundance of imports, containers have become a low cost method for the eco and arts communities to create shelter. At Morey's Piers the containers will serve a variety of practical and aesthetic purposes from storage, office space, signage and now extreme branding for Morey’s Piers largest collection of extreme rides.
