The Tides of Provincetown: Pivotal Years in America’s Oldest Continuous Art Colony (1899-2011)

http://www.wmuseumaa.org/museum/getexhib.cfm?ID=66

Organized by the New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA), New Britain, Connecticut, this exhibition is the first comprehensive survey of America's oldest continuous arts colony from its start to the present day. Provincetown art and artists have played a pivotal role in the development of American art, most notably Modernism, and this exhibition highlights over 100 works of art created by artists associated with the Massachusetts seashore town over the past 111 years. Artists from Charles Webster Hawthorne to Hans Hofmann found solace and inspiration in the art colony "at the end of the world" and this exhibition examines Provincetown's lasting legacy and impact.
