Colorful Rockport Cultural Arts District (RCAD) flags were installed on each side of the 38 light poles on Austin Street Tuesday, July 7th.    The City removed the American flags after the 4th holiday as usual and then replaced them with RCAD flags.
RCADs’ Board Director Bonnie Carlisle championed this initiative, defining durable blue, green, pink, and yellow flags that display RCADs awesome Whooping Crane logo.   RCAD’s VP, Deb Strothman, took pictures of an very colorful Austin Street flying the flags.
RCAD is very grateful to The Margaret Sue Rust Foundation who provided funding for this initiative.
RCAD is also grateful to the City of Rockport for their support of this initiative by placing, removing, and storing the flags.
RCAD’s Mission is to highlight Rockport’s artistic legacy as a vibrant creative community, encourage new life and economic development, enhance our community’s cohesiveness and sense of place, and foster local cultural development.
