New murals proposed for Gloucester

Monday April 12, 2021

North Shore Community Development Coalition and Action Inc. have partnered together to bring new art into downtown Gloucester through The Punto Urban Art Museum (PUAM). This program was founded by North Shore CDC in Salem’s Point neighborhood to break down the invisible socio-economic barriers.

Visit the Request for Proposals. Artists have the opportunity between April 12th and May 2nd to apply for three murals by visiting here. The murals will be two interior and one exterior, at Harbor Village, a new building located at 206 Main Street in Gloucester. Harbor Village is a new mixed-use development bringing 30 affordable apartments for families into downtown. The goal for this call is to provide opportunities for local and regional artists to bring life and color into downtown Gloucester. Selected artists/teams will be a part of efforts to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Gloucester. Artists’ work will be voted on and selected by members of the Gloucester community and stakeholders of the project.
