Our Shark Is In The Park!
Chatham Marconi Maritime Center has sponsored an entry in the Chatham Merchants Association’s 2016 Sharks In The Park competition.
CMMC Operations Manager and Artist-in-Residence Dorothy Bassett created a shark featuring a painting of the original wireless receiving station and antenna array on one side, and the ARGOS satellite-based shark tracking scheme on the reverse. Volunteer Bob Schmedicke built the SPOT tag model on the shark’s dorsal fin.
Our shark was one of forty entries commissioned by the Chatham Merchants Association, decorated by local artists and displayed all summer in downtown Chatham.
