Amazing Works of Outdoor Art

This is a fantastic place to bring the family if you are in the area. The local area artists also contribute to some amazing works of art just outside the Rockport Art Center.

We spent an enjoyable hour looking at the artwork and items for sell in the gift shop. It was a pleasant way to avoid the sun during the middle of the day.

The art center is worth the visit. They have done ea great job profiling local artist as well as local who have reached national levels. Check out the art festivals that are sponsored by the art center. A great weekend will be had by all.

I absolutely loved walking around and photographing the sculptures outside near the water. Very beautiful! The large cranes were amazing to see. They are huge! Kudos to the artist because they are great!

Nice stop if you are exploring downtown Rockport. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they are open. Very nice exhibits from local artists. You can learn lots about the area from the people here.

The Rockport Art Center would be a credit in a city 10 times it's size but is unbelievable in a city of 7,000+ people! Located directly on Aransas Bay in a historic building it's superb. The staff is outstanding and again would not be expected in a city this size. The gallery features many local artists as well as artists... More

Laid out with a feeling of spaciousness. Ceramic pieces and artwork are appealing. Nice little gift shop. A very pleasant stop.

We are not art gallery fans usually. The cold dreary day pushed us to seek shelter in this building and it turned out to be a lovely find. We browsed through racks of art prints by local artists and my husband and I each found one print that spoke to our hearts! There were many interesting renderings of artistic visions.... More
