Rockport Art Association & Museum 100th Anniversary Ceremony

The Rockport Art Association & Museum created a lively and welcoming celebration this weekend to recognize 100 years since its founding. I was honored to be asked to share remarks, present the RAA&M with an official Resolution of the State Senate, and place items sealed into a time capsule before burying it. The capsule, with items such as drawings, photographs, and other items representing present-day Rockport, will be opened for the 200th anniversary by a generation not yet born. 

The officers, members, supporters, artists, and art admirers who have helped sustain art and culture do us all a great service. I encourage you to visit.
