The Rockport Art Association and Museum is pleased to announce the opening of our  Adopt A Painting program. The RAA&M Museum Collection contains a number of exceptional paintings that are in need of some minor restoration and repair. Please consider contributing to this program while visiting the Rockport Art Association & Museum or below. Thank you in advance for your assistance in the restoration of paintings from the Museum Collection so that both present and future art lovers will be able to enjoy them in a manor congruent with the intent of the original artists.
