Motif No.1 Day

Motif with Gulls by Brooke Marston Demeri

The Rockport Festivals Committee is preparing for an exciting 2010!

First on our calendar? Motif No.1 Day, slated for May 22nd. This year more than ever we are centering our activities and events on the Arts in honor of Rockport's heritage. We are bringing back last year's very popular Try Your Hand Art Event, where festival-goers were encouraged to draw Rockport's famous red fishing shack from their own perspective, whatever their ability. Easels with the necessary art supplies were placed throughout town at several vantage points facing Motif No.1 and artists-for-the-day could take their creations home or leave them on the easel to inspire the rest of us.

Try Your Hand Art Event is only one of the many events we're plotting for you in your visit to downtown Rockport during the kickoff to what promises to be an exciting season for all things artistic in Rockport. Put Motif No. 1 Day on your calendar now, and we'll see you in the Spring!
