Scope of the problem l.jpg
Scope of the Problem

  • MISSION STATEMENT

  • The Shore Institute of the Contemporary Arts (SICA) is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to establish a uniquely stimulating and creative environment in which to experience the contemporary arts. The primary goal of the center is to increase the general public's accessibility, awareness and appreciation of the contemporary arts in central New Jersey. By establishing close relationships with major art organizations and educational institutions, we will seek to complement and augment those programs currently available through the establishment of classes, lectures, exhibitions and performances. (http://www.sica.org/about.html)


Scope of the problem3 l.jpg
Scope of the Problem

  • There are no facilities within the City of Long Branch to expose its residents to the Arts

  • Proposed location for the Institute is in an area which the City of Long Branch would like to redevelop.

    • In regards to the location, the City would like to create an Arts District 1 (Woolley 2005)

1 Conversation with Howard H. Woolley Jr., Business Administrator, City of Long Branch, June 2005


Scope of the problem4 l.jpg
Scope of the Problem

  • Nature of “The Arts”

    • “Unlike most traditional businesses, the arts tend to flourish when there is more competition. More visitors tend to be attracted to areas where there is a greater volume or intensity of artistic activities (Development Proposal, p.3, June 2001)

  • The problem is not just lack of access to the arts, but also the fact that this institution will help spur development to this sector of the City of Long Branch

  • Facility Acquisition

    • The building was built sometime in the early 1900s. In the early 1920s, the Richelieu Automobile Company used this building as one of its manufacturing sites.

    • 1956, the Branch Garment Company, manufacturers of children’s clothing, came into being and shared this location with M. H. Levine Company and Schneider’s Radio. By 1959, the Branch Garment Company was now called the Long Branch Manufacturing Company.

    • By 1965, they were the sole remaining business in this building. They were still in business in 1970, the last year the Long Branch City Directory was published.

    • The last business concern to be located here in the early 1990s was the Lincoln Can Manufacturing Company. They made lithographed cans for olive oil and peanut oil. (http://www.sica.org/history.html)
