Philanthropists Gerry Lenfest and Bob Hildreth viewed the progress on
Ernestina-Morrissey's rehabilitation in August. Together they have provided $2.8 million toward this project and we thank them for their continued interest in the future of the ship.
This summer artists from the SouthCoast visited New Bedford State Pier to glean surplus material from the
Ernestina-Morrissey storage area. Chuck Smiler and
Gallery X's Chuck Hauck organized this opportunity for artists to "re-purpose" the material they gleaned with the cooperation of the Schooner Ernestina Commission and the Department of Conservation and Recreation's project manager and pier manager.
