Big art

The Rockport Center for the Arts’ 50th annual Rockport Art Festival featured various art forms for attendees, as well as some cool stuff for kids. Rockport Center for the Arts Executive Director Luis Puron said final statistics aren’t available for the 50th annual Rockport Art Festival, but said, “We had a sensational Saturday, attendance wise.” He said Sunday was slow, but Friday night’s Art Auction Gala had a great turnout with 630 people in attendance. From a financial standpoint, Puron said both the Gala and Festival were extremely successful. “I can also report that at the Rockport Center for the Arts we’ve had the three strongest Saturdays, since Hurricane Harvey, all in a row - June 22, 29, and July 6,” he said.
