June 1 – July 14, 2019: Rock ’n Remember, the BBHS 2019 Summer Exhibition, featured reclaimed vintage rocking chairs as well as paintings, photographs and sculptures by local artists. The opening on June 1 drew a large crowd, many of whom had their first opportunity to explore the diverse collection of memorabilia on display at the Bradley Beach Historical Museum, 719 Main Street in the Biase Center next to Borough Hall. Happily, several rockers have taken up residence in local shops for the summer.

BBHS is grateful to Present, Girls Just Want to Have Fun, Hair Love, The Stock Room, and the Bradley Beach Public Library for displaying rockers throughout the summer.
