Founded in 1981, the Cape Cod Museum of Art takes pride in telling the story of the Cape and Islands’ rich art heritage and in showing the best work from today’s vibrant art community. With a facility boasting seven beautiful galleries and a lovely sculpture garden, the museum is at the heart of the Cape and its artistic life. Its permanent collection of some 2,300 works includes gems by such important artists as Charles W. Hawthorne, William McGregor Paxton, Henry Hensche, Hans Hofmann, Robert Vickrey and Red Grooms.
Frequent lectures and programs provide many opportunities to enhance your knowledge and appreciation of art. You’ll also find wonderful outlets for your own creativity through the museum’s year-round art classes.
The CCMA reaches out to local young people through classroom presentations and museum visits, our annual “Through Young Eyes” exhibition and Summer Art Camp. Our gift shop reflects our mission by featuring an exciting array of objects created by local artists and craftspeople.
