GLOUCESTER, MA – The Ralph B. O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester today announced the opening of the “Vanilla, Strawberry, Picasso” celebration of student work and ice cream social featuring O’Maley students’ masterpieces of learning.
As part of the evening’s events, come see the W.P. A. murals by Cape Ann’s own Frederick J. Mulhaupt (1871-1938), who is best known for capturing the era of the “New Deal”. The paintings, worth an estimated $1.1 million, are open to the public inside the O’Maley Middle School on Tuesday, April 14th from 6:00 P.M.–8:00 P.M.
The “Vanilla, Strawberry, Picasso” event is part of a community outreach plan to promote the Ralph B. O’Maley Middle School’s commitment to high standards of academic excellence and community involvement. “This event is centered on the students, staff, and all the great things that they are doing to further O’Maley Middle School as a place where students can thrive and succeed,” said O’Maley’s Principal Dr. Michael Tracy. “This is an opportunity for our school to open its doors to the public and feature exemplary pieces of students’ work in addition to sharing some influential art work.”
The Ralph B. O’Maley Middle School is organized around the unique needs of 6th-8th grade students. The entire faculty and staff are committed to the school’s core values: to nurture academic excellence and provide a safe learning and social environment, while encouraging mutual respect and fostering close connections.
