Last night I enjoyed participating in ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, its members, and the local business community to the new campus in Gloucester. Hanging on the walls inside the museum's new facility is a new exhibition of the Community Self Portrait Project.
Here's how CAM describes the project: For over a year, the Cape Ann Museum has been collecting self-portraits from residents in Cape Ann to be exhibited at the Janet & William Ellery James Center. Displayed in a grid, these portraits come together to form a tapestry. They will be on view along with community quilts by Clara Wainwright and by participants in the Rose Baker Senior Center Art Program, under the direction of Juni Van Dyke.
