Together for a Better Gloucester City Event
November 14, 2015
The Hearth Community Fund announced today that the organization will be sponsoring a Together for a Better Gloucester City Event from 1 PM to 3 PM on Saturday, November 14 at the Betsy Ross Pavilion in Proprietors Park (King Street & Jersey Avenue) in Gloucester City. All community residents, young and old, are invited to roll up their sleeves, grab a paintbrush and personalize their own wooden fish sculpture.
Community fish sculptures will be included in the new Hearth Community Fund’s sponsored “Wave Wall” which will be located next to the Pavilion. New York artist, Winter Willoughby-Spera, is the Artistic Director of the “Wave.” Winter will be on the premise to supervise the project and to share her award-winning plan for the upcoming exciting improvements to the Park. The plan reflects exciting changes to the existing Betsy Ross Pavilion. A glass wall with the architectural blue prints from old Gloucester City will be incorporated into the pavilion.
According to Ms. Willoughby-Spera, once the project is completed, visitors to the Park will be able to look through the glass wall to see what old Gloucester City looked like in the forefront, with the skyline of modern Gloucester City’s harbor front in the background. This installation, created by the community, will make a lasting contribution to the Park. Ms. Willoughby-Spera said “I love this interactive approach. It celebrates the talent of residents as well as reinforces Gloucester City’s proud history as the fishing village.” The city has a long history of attracting famous artists and was once the source of inspiration for the celebrated painting, “The Shad Fisherman” by the well-renowned Thomas Eakins.
Food and drink, including a complimentary tasting of top-notch Russian River Valley and Napa wines, will be supplied by Max’s Seafood Café at the “Give it your Max” tent. Music will be provided by local Gloucester City musicians. Thomas M. Monahan, Owner of Max’s Seafood Café and President of the Gloucester City Business Association (GCBA) said “We have a great city and I hope many of our residents will come out and artistically demonstrate what Gloucester City means to them. We are grateful to the Hearth Community Fund for providing this artistic opportunity which will enhance our waterfront and reinforce our community pride – all while having fun!”
