Lease/Option and project development 2011-2012, acquisition and renovations 2013-2014
The Rocky Neck Art Colony, one of the oldest working art colonies in the country, is acquiring the former Christian Science Church on Rocky Neck, Gloucester as a permanent, year-round home. Acquisition of the building, known as The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck presents a unique moment in the life of the Art Colony and Rocky Neck to leverage cultural and funding partners, the City of Gloucester and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, by creating a cultural institution benefiting the neighborhood, the community of artists and art lovers on Cape Ann and beyond. Through programs of art exhibitions, workshops, cultural events and a lecture series covering a broad spectrum of topics, we have already established an appreciative and welcoming audience.
