A M1D Thank You!!!

Thanks so much to all the volunteers, donors, festival-goers, and performers who made Motif No. 1 Day such a fun, interactive, arts-focused day! From the 5K for Rockport Public Schools in the morning to the Rockport Art Colony’s pop-up exhibit at night, the day was a great celebration of Rockport’s iconic motif.

Gearing up for the M1D Festival!

Now that March is here, our thoughts turn to the Motif No.1 Day Festival, just a few short months away. The award winning Motif No.1 Day 5K & Fun Run is back, with proceeds from the race benefitting Health & Wellness initiatives atĀ Rockport Schools.

Plenty of arts programming is back too, with dance, theater, film, literary events, visual arts and more. M1D focuses on interactive elements, so festival-goers can make art as well as experience it.

Interested in volunteering with the M1D team? Get in touch at info@rockportexchange.org. We would love to have you join us, whether as part of the planning process leading up to the festival or on the day itself.

Every year we print two types of Motif No.1 Day posters: the annual commemorative poster featuring work from a local artist and a promotional poster, with details about the festival itself. Here is this year’s promo poster, with a collage by Mary Faino of The Paper Mermaid. We LOVE this poster and are excited about seeing it all over Cape Ann spreading the word about Motif No.1 Day! Feel free to download and share it through your own networks!
