Motif No.1 Day

The 2015 Press Release

The Motif No.1 Day Festival celebrates the Arts in Rockport. And all of it centers around the fishing shack-artist's studio-tourist attraction that started it all: an old building right on one of Rockport's historic wharves that was painted so often by artists at the turn of the last century that it was given the nickname Motif No.1 by Lester Hornby, a well know artist and instructor of the period. Film, poetry, dance, music, and art-making activities are all a part of the festival, as well as historical presentations and a 5k and Fun Run, with proceeds to benefit Rockport Public Schools' wellness initiatives.

Motif No.1 Day takes place from 9am to 9pm on Saturday, May 16th 2015 in downtown Rockport. The Motif No.1 Day 5k starts at 9am. For directions to downtown Rockport, click here. Need a place to stay?
