From John McElhenny-
Gloucester is in the running to win Massachusetts’ highest prize in arts and culture.
Gloucester is one of 16 Massachusetts communities being considered for the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Commonwealth Awards. The City recently submitted a beautiful video about Gloucester’s seascapes, landscapes and events that inspire many kinds of artists. The video, which was done by Gloucester video artists Gallo Productions and Meg Montagnino-Jarrett, is here.
For Gloucester to win, residents are asked to view Gloucester’s video and vote for it by clicking “Like” before next Tuesday, Oct. 26. The top three vote-getting communities will be the finalists.
Gloucester’s artistic history is as rich as any other community in the state but we’re at a disadvantage because larger cities like Lowell, New Bedford and Somerville have more people to vote for them. So we need votes! Email your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers. If Gloucester wins, our video will be showcased at the Statehouse and Gloucester will be able to tout itself as the Top Arts Community in Massachusetts – a great selling point.
Readers are urged to vote for Gloucester’s video before next Tuesday, Oct. 26!
Here it is
This is a vote I can get behind!
