Thanks to the committed efforts of Carol Smith-Sloan and Holly Rader of All Cracked Up custom art in Hingham, and support from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), a seaglass mural has been installed at the Spectacle Island Visitors' Center in honor of Susan Snow-Cotter , former CZM Director who died of Inflammatory Breast Cancer in December, 2006. Before her death, Susan had been helping the All Cracked Up team get the appropriate DCR permissions to donate the piece, which now graces the wall as you enter the Visitors' Center. The large, swirling wave is made of seaglass and bits of broken pottery that were collected from Spectacle Island. A plaque dedicating the mural to Susan, "a true leader in coastal management," will remind all who see it of her personal and professional commitment to coastal and ocean issues. Thanks to everyone who made the mural a reality!
