Awesome Rockport is proud to announce that we have awarded local artist Josh Falk a micro-grant to create a mural on Stone Barn Lane behind the Rockport Public Library. Josh is an accomplished artist and muralist who submitted a proposal that was a mix of awesome community spirit and artistic knowhow. Congratulations to Josh, and a big thank you to him as well for approaching this opportunity with unparalleled enthusiasm and appreciation for the grassroots nature of the initiative. Josh is supremely awesome in our book!
In addition to being extraordinarily proud to support Josh’s creative efforts to inspire Rockport through public art, Awesome Rockport is also proud to have partnered with Rockport Music (the wall owner!), the Rockport Art Association, and the Rockport Public Library on this initiative.
We would also like to extend special thanks to Selectman Don Campbell for facilitating our approval process and to Jim Ugone of the Rockport Historical Commission for guiding and encouraging us, and to Rockport Police for ensuring our plan accounts for local safety rules and expectations.
We look forward to unveiling Josh’s work of art at this year’s Rockport Harvest Fest.
