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

http://nbmaa.org/

The New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA) presents The Tides of Provincetown: Pivotal Years in America’s Oldest Continuous Art Colony (1899-2011) July 15, 2011 through Oct. 16, 2011 in the Museum’s McKernan Gallery. The Tides of Provincetown will focus on Provincetown’s legacy as an art colony (in 1916, the Boston Globe declared it the “Biggest Art Colony in the World”) and will cover over 100 artists and as many artworks from Charles W. Hawthorne’s founding of the Cape Cod School of Art in 1899—and, thereby, the colony itself—to the present day. This will be the largest and most comprehensive examination of the art colony ever completed as the last Provincetown survey (exhibited over 40 years ago) ended with artwork from the 1970s.
