    The crown jewel of Gloucester’s harbor community, Rocky Neck is a peninsula surrounding Smith Cove. It is home to mostly year-round residents and has a thriving summertime population of artists, art galleries and restaurants, and the historic Rocky Neck Art Colony, one of the oldest working art colonies in the United States and a 501(c)3 arts organization since 1973. Rocky Neck recently became one of the first five “Designated Massachusetts Cultural Districts” in the state of Massachusetts; this designation denotes past traditions and contemporary vibrancy along with the area’s orientation towards a local creative economy. It is also home to the Goetemann Artist-In-Residency Program which supports three month-long residencies during the summer each year, as well as a Distinguished Artist Teacher Program. The mission of the Rocky Neck Art Colony is to nurture excellence in the visual arts and to celebrate the artistic culture of Rocky Neck and the entire Cultural District from a contemporary and historical context.

    Local Cape Ann buses and seasonal trolleys serve the area and the Gloucester Harbor Water Shuttle makes it easy to visit East Gloucester by water.
