Rocky Neck Art Colony
America's Oldest Artist Colony
Rocky Neck Art Colony is the oldest working art colony in the US. Leonard Craske, the sculptor who created 'Man at the Wheel', marking the Fisherman's Memorial, called the area home. Louisa May Alcott and Rudyard Kipling worked in studios here. Once you visit, you'll understand why the area was inspirational to so many. Today, The Neck is home to many working artists, galleries, shops and funky restaurants. Bohemian in nature with million dollar views, it's a spot not to miss on Cape Ann.
