Cape Ann COSMOS Releases Gloucester 400+ COSMOS Culture Folio


Cape Ann COSMOS has published a special edition of its digital arts and culture magazine, “Gloucester 400+ COSMOS Culture Folio,” that features 15 original articles drawn from the defining stories of cultural heritage of Gloucester. 

Co-editors of the Folio edition are Manchester resident Chris Munkholm and Bing McGilvray.  The design editor is Meredith Anderson.

The 15 articles cover a broad range of topics, from the “Sky Watchers of Pole Hill,” by Maryellen Lepionka, an independent scholar studying the archaeology and early history of Cape Ann through the cast of characters in five houses associated with Gloucester’s “Gold Coast” era to today’s renowned artists who continue the city’s cultural legacy.  The special edition was made available online this week.  Entry level subscriptions are free, and the Gloucester 400+ articles will be available through the end of the calendar year.
