Surfs Up!

A one-day installation at the Cape Ann Museum's White-Ellery House (1710).

Stop in for a rare chance to see a huge collection of vintage surfboards curated by Cameron Ahearn, Kerry Sullivan and Jamie Hosker. Boards range from the mid 20th century through
the present day. The collection was compiled over many years by Cameron Ahearn’s father and once adorned the walls of The Studio Restaurant on Rocky Neck. This program is free and open to the public.

Plus ... Surf Music & Films and Special Activities for Kids!

•  Design your own surfboard
•  Challenge your core strength on balance boards
•  "Seek & Find" through the Surf's Up! installation

The White-Ellery House is located at 245 Washington Street in Gloucester and is free and open to the public on select Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each month from May through October.



The White-Ellery House (1710), owned and operated by the Cape Ann Museum, has served as the backdrop for a series of one-day contemporary art installations since 2010.

Support for this program is provided by The Umberto Romano and Clorinda Romano Foundation which celebrates Umberto Romano’s (1906–1982) legacy on Cape Ann through arts education and appreciation and by fostering the work of emerging and/or working artists.

About the White-Ellery House

The White-Ellery House, located at 245 Washington Street in Gloucester at the Route 128 Grant Circle Rotary, was built in 1710 and is one of just a handful of First Period houses in Eastern Massachusetts that survives to this day. Unlike other structures of this period, the largely unfurnished house has had very few interior alterations over the years. Stepping inside today, visitors enter much the same house they would have 300 years ago. Parking is available off Poplar Street in the field behind the house.
