There's more than one way to add autumn color to the Provincetown scene. In front of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) was this bright sculpure titled "I Was Once a Forest" by Frank Vasello. And, PAAM is our Friday link today!
If you're planning a fall foray to the Outer Cape, add this fine art stop to your itinerary. Right now, the hours are, "October - May noon to 5 pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday also open by appointment."
PAAM's Mission is: "The objects and purposes of this association shall be to promote and cultivate the practice and appreciation of all branches of the fine arts, to assemble and maintain in the town of Provincetown and environs a collection of works of art of merit, to hold exhibitions, and by forums, concerts and similar activities to promote education of the public in the arts and social intercourse between artists and laymen. To these ends it shall operate strictly within its charter as a nonprofit, educational, artistic and cultural organization."
Provincetown in still a community of artists and PAAM is the artistic heartbeat of the town. Admission is just $7 and is free for PAAM members and on Friday evenings. The sculpture garden surrounding the museum is always open and always free.
