ROCKPORT — On Saturday, May 21, at 10:30 a.m., local artist Jon Moro presents the “Making of King Arthur.” This event will be held in Memorial Park, across from the Rockport Public Library. If there is rain this event will be held inside the library.

Moro will begin by talking about the legend of the young King Arthur, then expand the theme to examine how it relates to finding one’s destiny and purpose. He will also share the creative process he went through to shape his sculpture.

This piece is the third in the “Heroes” series, following “David and Goliath” and “Robin Hood.”

Moro is a visual artist with a passion for exploring the dynamic expression of bodies in motion through his sculptures. From figures to life-size pieces, each is carved and shaped from wood. Moro is a Rockport native, and he is represented by Leslie Curtis Designs, 8 Bayview St.,  Camden.

This event is sponsored by the Rockport Public Library and is free and open to all. Please contact the library at 236-3642 with any questions.
