In June, Awesome Gloucester commissioned Studio Fresh to create original public art to honor the legion of people in Gloucester who have made a living working “on fish” in “on land” jobs. The mural includes images of women processing fish, a lumper, and a fish cutter.
During the creation of the mural, Persistent Production, a Cape Ann based film and documentary production company, produced an original 6-minute documentary film.
The mural itself in now proudly displayed on an outdoor wall of Ocean Crest Seafood/Neptune’s Harvest in the Fort Neighborhood of Gloucester. The film will debut on November 12th at 6 PM on the Gloucester Facebook page. A community-wide conversation will also happen on November 12th at 7 PM on Zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81506707722). Both events open to public.
