Reviving Andre the Seal

May 8, 2018

Andre the seal was a very famous resident of Rockport harbor from 1961 through 1986, who wintered at the Boston Aquarium.

So famous, that he has a memorial sculpture at Rockport Marine Park, created by Jane Wasey in 1978.

I’m excited to have been selected to restore this tribute to a famous and much-loved resident.

See this article about the restoration in the Penobscot Bay Pilot.  Formal approval by the Rockport Select Board is expected on Monday, May 14.  The work is privately funded; fundraising is in progress.
