We’ve partnered with North Shore Community Development Coalition (NSCDC) to bring new art into downtown Gloucester through the Punto Urban Art Museum (PUAM). This program was founded by NSCDC in Salem’s Point neighborhood to break down socio-economic barriers and use public art as a tool to help integrate neighborhoods and create more resilient communities.

Through this Request for Proposals, artists will have the opportunity between April 12 and May 2 to apply for three murals (two interior and one exterior) at Harbor Village, 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 for the outdoor mural 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.
