CITY HALL MURALS
On behalf of Mayor Carolyn A. Kirk and the City of Gloucester, the Committee for the Arts (CFTA) will be hosting three days of mural celebration this coming weekend at City Hall September 27-29th during Trails & Sails 2013.
*There’s a special lecture from conservator Peter Williams on Friday night, September 27, 2013, at 7PM, Kyrouz Auditorium, City Hall.
*Also stop in anytime from 1-3pm both Saturday and Sunday; City Hall will be open! Special guest Susan Erony will offer a guided talk both Saturday and Sunday at 1:15PM.
Year round, when City Hall is open, make time to see these beautifully painted and detailed murals. We are fortunate to have such holdings and it’s so important to preserve this part of history. The Committee for the Arts expresses thanks to the City of Gloucester CPA funding, the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation, private donors, and individuals for their generous donations in response to the Committee’s ongoing effort to raise funds for the care and restoration of these murals. If you would like to join the effort to care for the irreplaceable City art– including the historic murals– and the work of the CFTA, contributions in support of our City art can me mailed to:
