Artist Resources

Dear friends,

What a week. Last Friday we made the difficult decision to close the Museum and transition most of the staff to remote work. We knew this decision came at a great cost: as a member-supported organization operating year-round in Provincetown, we have a responsibility to provide programming that engages and inspires, even (and especially) during difficult times—and that’s a commitment we intend to see through.

Below is a list of resources, from emergency grants for artists, to creative activities to help keep you engaged. Feel free to email any additional recommendations to, we’ll update this list periodically.

We’ve been keeping busy and having a lot of fun with our creative prompts on our social media pages, follow along (on Facebook and Instagram) and submit your work to be shared in our stories!

Kiah is working closely (not physically!) with our local Teaching Artists to develop virtual teaching tools. She’d love some feedback from you to gauge interest, access to web tools, etc., please consider taking her survey here: PAAM Virtual Learning.

Many of you have generously asked how you can support PAAM during this time. If you’re able to make a donation, we would be enormously grateful. You can also join or renew your membership at any time, we’ll make sure to extend your renewal date if you’re renewing early. But the best way you can support us right now is by remaining healthy so that we can see you this summer for openings, The Secret Garden Tour, in the Museum School, at the Annual Consignment Auction, and partying at what will be the most-needed Gala ever!

Thank you as always for your support, your kind words,
and your love of Provincetown art.

Christine McCarthy, and all of us at PAAM.
