‘What Does Love Mean to You?’ Come See What People in Gloucester Had to Say About Love. This interactive community art project has traveled throughout Gloucester all summer (May through September) in the form of a giant easel. People from throughout Cape Ann and even around the world stopped by to share positive messages, from all walks of life, ages 2 to 92. Each banner is quite unique, with its essence reflecting that of the people in each neighborhood/venue.
