PAAM At The Statehouse

November 1 - January 31, 2018

About the Exhibition

This past October, we had the pleasure of installing an exhibition at the Boston State House of works from our Permanent Collection selected by state senators. We’re grateful to have the opportunity to exhibit the work of so many Outer Cape artists at our state’s capital and policy center, and we love sharing the PAAM collection with as many people and institutions as possible. Thank you especially to State Senator Julian Cyr for inviting us and coordinating this effort!

Hundreds of artists have, for shorter or longer times, called outer Cape Cod home. Several of them are represented in the PAAM Collection, which has over 3,000 works by more than 700 artists. The Museum also holds an extensive archive of materials referencing the artists whose work is represented in the collection, as well as ephemera associated with the continual activities of the Museum and Association. The Museum provides these resources on request to scholars and historians.
