Founded in 1914 to collect and show the works of artists with Provincetown connections, this facility has a 1,650-piece permanent collection, displayed in changing exhibits that mix up-and-comers with established 20th-century figures, including Milton Avery, Philip Evergood, William Gropper, Charles Hawthorne, Robert Motherwell, Claes Oldenburg, Man Ray, John Singer Sargent, Andy Warhol, and Agnes Weinrich. A stunning, contemporary wing has greatly expanded the exhibit
space. The museum store carries books of local interest, including works by or about area artists and authors, as well as posters, crafts, cards, and gift items. Art classes (one day and longer) offer the opportunity to study under such talents as Hilda Neily, Selina Trieff, and Doug Ritter.
