Artist Christine Finn of St. Helier, Jersey presents her art installation at the bunker in Cape May Point State Park Saturday, Nov. 15. Finn created 350 pots made of ground granite to be placed on the bunker that was built and used during World War II. The artist grew up in Jersey, one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel, where concrete bunkers, built by the Nazis during the war, still stand. The project was first started on her home island where visitors were invited to place 350 concrete pots in a nature reserve.  Finn feels Jersey and New Jersey have many similarities and bringing the project to the bunker in Cape May Point ties together the shared history. The artist was surprised to see visitors place pots around the Cape May Point bunker similar to how they were placed in Jersey.
