There’s just one more week until the Massachusetts Cultural Council visits downtown Gloucester for their big 4 hour site visit on Thursday, FEBRUARY 21, 2013
We’re hoping your readers will help us reach out to all DOWNTOWN GLOUCESTER residents, businesses, organizations.
Help us Decorate by printing and displaying Art Haven’s custom welcome poster!
Please print out and share this wonderful poster, a unique and custom welcome for MCC, designed by Art Haven, a founding cultural partner. We’re hoping residents, businesses, and organizations throughout the district at street level or above will put it in their window or door for that day. Founding partner, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce will disperse it to its members. Thank you GMG for posting. Fred Bodin is also reaching out to his network to encourage printing/posting!
The proposed DGCD footprint very roughly spans from St.Peter’s/the Chamber side over to Gortons, and from City Hall to Maritime Gloucester . This means it includes the Civic jewels, all of Middle, all of Main, all of Harbor Loop, our waterfront, and Rogers until Rose Baker. It’s the same footprint used for decades and that we all know. We’ll be included in a select group that receive designation and will be marketed with 5 others on the North Shore . We will be the first town in the state with two cultural districts! It mirrors the HarborWalk’s, the Chamber of Commerce’s, Discover Gloucester , and Maritime Trail mapsl, etc–everyone’s efforts to maintain the integrity of downtown and historic harbor area. It will likely increase what is already great and working. Our downtown works hard to offer residents, visitors and employees fantastic experiences!
