The annual Citywide Arts Festival, a collaboration between the Gloucester Public School District and the Gloucester Education Foundation, continues to grow with another extensive downtown event. This year’s festival will feature art and performances from children in every school in the Gloucester Public School District.

The Arts Festival takes place on Saturday, May 13 and is a showcase of student visual and performance art, including painting, ceramics, photography, woodworking, poetry, theater and music from every school in the district.

All are invited to participate in a collaborative art project that will take place from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the Sculpture Park across from the Cape Ann Museum.

A highlight of the festival will be the paintings and drawings by Gloucester’s own rising artists – students from the Gloucester Pre-School, the city’s five elementary schools, O’Maley Innovation Middle School and Gloucester High School – that will be displayed in downtown venues – City Hall, Sawyer Free Library, the Cape Ann Museum, and the Sculpture Park.
