Jay talks with Oliver Barker and Leon Doucette from the Cape Ann Museum, which is located in Gloucester. Oliver serves as the Director of the museum and Leon is an Assistant Curator. They’re both here today to inform us about the fascinating eexhibition entitled “Designed and Hand-Blocked by the Folly Cove Designers”.
During the program, we’ll be finding out who the Folly Cove Designers were and why and how the exhibition came about. We’ll go on a behind-the-scenes tour and, in the process, come to better understand and appreciate the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Folly Cove Designers and the noteworthy legacy they’ve left for us to admire and learn from.
