Keep in mind that the installation is a work-in-progress. Look for updates and notices of an official unveiling!
Look and look again: The spiffed up HarborWalk Fishermen’s Wharf exhibit is deeply channeled–joining fine art and discussion, business and community, wharf and sea. Keep in mind that the installation is a work-in-progress. Look for updates and notices of an official unveiling!
Back in 2010, detailed information panels along Fishermen’s Wharf were created by Mark McDonough, Vito Giacalone, Peter Prybot and Joey Ciaramitaro. The panels were installed along the Giacalone’s wall, between businesses and at the water’s edge. The content, collaborative spirit and contemporary reporting impacted the HarborWalk design. Cambridge Seven Associates, architects for the HarborWalk, were fans. Connections were encouraged. Two HarborWalk story posts (formerly described as Story Moments) were sited at each end: Fishing Today HarborWalk Story Post #5 and Lobstering HarborWalk Story Post #4. Pretty much everybody hoped the signs would be cared for and this outdoor channel would remain.
Thanks to bright sunshine, the panels along Fishermen’s Wharf deteriorated. Some of the fabulous content disappeared. Guess what? Signs are temporary and can be re-visited.
New signs were designed, content edited and updated, and the display taken to a new level with support of the City. Matt Coogan, Senior Planner Community Development, directed the project, working with the original authors and team. Cambridge Seven Associates designed the panels. The addition of fine art photography, drawings and design spiffed up the already museum quality display. Fine art by Joey Ciaramitaro, Marty Luster, Paul Frontiero and others are something else to celebrate this week!
Saunter by. More stories to come. Worth repeating: the exhibit is still a work in progress. It’s not 100% live…yet!
This Is It!

Tied up at “Fisherman’s Wharf” Gloucester
The fence has been taken down between Latitude 43 and Fishermen’s Wharf.
I don’t know if Fishermen’s Wharf has been purchased by McDonough and Co, but it seems that way. There are still signs up in the Fishermen’s Wharf parking lot that say “authorized parking only” but it looks like the lot has been cleared and cleaned up for restaurant parking.
We went last night to use one of the Where The Locals Go Lat 43 buy two sushi rolls and get a free California Roll coupon and we parked in the Fishermen’s Wharf lot. The public walkway between Fishermen’s Wharf and Lat 43 is complete with some interesting pavers and the deck is certainly inviting. I took some pictures this morning at 4:45AM from the observation deck in front of Lat 43. Its a pretty good view if you are into the industrial harbor thing. Got some shots of the dorys that Damon uses and are tied up on the Saint Peter’s Marina floats.
