On Saturday October 12,2013 a dedication ceremony was held at Maritime Gloucester 23 Harbor Loop to dedicate the beautiful Compass Rose that was installed over the summer. The Compass Rose was donated by Matthew Collins. The artist was Mark Read. They both spoke as well as Tom Balf Executive Director of Maritime Gloucester, state and city officials. A reception was held following the ceremony. Music was provided by Michael O’Leary and friends. A good time was had by all. The event was well attended.

Compass Rose at Maritime Gloucester

Hi Joey-

I wanted to let everyone know that the installation of the Compass Rose sculpture (pictured here with the Sculptor himself, Mark Read) is complete. It is located at the front of Maritime Gloucester and is a beautiful sight to behold, especially at night when it is lit!
