Crisfield Seafood Workers Mural Installation Postponed

A Crisfield Seafood Workers Mural has been commissioned from artist Michael Rosato and work has been completed in his Cambridge studio. The mural was scheduled to be installed the weekend of August 8, 2020 at 347 W Main Street in Crisfield. This mural is a project of the Greater Crisfield Action Coalition and was undertaken by project leads Darlene Taylor and Eric Banks.

Unfortunately, wind damage from Tropical Storm Isaias has impacted the building and will take some time to repair. Residents from eight apartment units are currently seeking new housing. The building owners are working to get a structural engineer survey and will work closely with the City of Crisfield and Somerset County during repairs. A new installation date is planned for late fall 2020 after repairs are completed.

The Greater Crisfield Action Coalition and the Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District Project worked together to secure funding for this project. The mural was supported by grants from the Department of Housing and Community Development ($3,000), the Maryland State Arts Council ($7,065), the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore ($5,065), the Somerset County Arts Council ($2,800) and the Crisfield Arts & Entertainment District Project ($2,000).
