Reviews for PROVINCETOWN ART ASSOCIATION AND MUSEUM INC

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Boston artist, teacher and college art administrator and a huge fan of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Two very important artists have been brought to the public's attention by terrific shows at PAAM in recent years, that of Edwin Dickinson and Jack Tworkov. They do astoundingly important work for the cultrual community not only of Provincetown, but the entire Northeast.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

viewing work shown at the museum.

The Provincetown Art Association and Museum offers wonderful classes, experience, history, and exhibits. With their help, I as an artist am truly learning how to improve my art, experience all levels of art exploration and thrive through exhibition opportunities of all kinds. I feel that they are a true cornerstone to artistic exploration and history.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have developed opportunities to exhibit and seriously improved my artistic capabilities on multiple levels.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

offer them better funding so that they can expand and produce even more of their excellent contribution to the artistic and historic community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the artistic exploration and opportunities to exhibit and sell.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

open, friendly and extremely helpful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

truly do some amazing contributions to art education, history and its interaction with society.

Ways to make it better...

there were easier transportation and parking options.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

contact with all of Cape Cod and Boston due to transportation options, location and media.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it is one of the most welcoming, open and constructive art exploration locations from some of the top educators and artists in their fields.

As a member of the museum I make a point to visit frequently to keep up with the fantastic new exhibits regularly being mounted. As a local Art educator I have participated numerous times in a well planned program that allows students to curate a themed exhibit from the museum's collection as well as create their own work under the supervision of a local artist that is hung with the curated work. They create written responses to their chosen works and it is an amazing experience the museum provides for my students.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my students' pride in being exhibited alongside museum artists, with their families at the art opening. The community pride and exposure of new people to the museum is wonderful.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the new facilities are incredible- the art studios are wonderful, galleries filled with light, etc. The renovations were wonderful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

consistently knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming to all

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand programming and purchase more fabulous local artists' work

the art association is a non-institution institution. i have been taking my three children to see shows since i was able to pull them in their radio-flyer red wagon. they are now grown-ups and able to imbue themselves with the outrageous diversity that the art ass offers. we have enjoyed shoes of some of our dearest friends, and also cultivate a serious sense of provincetown's artistic history by staying in close touch with the former "chrysler museum". most recently, we cried and laughed through mischa richter's photos, which portrayed the provincetown we love, that of crusty old fisherpeople, funky houses and a happy/sad take on life in this small spit of land at the end of the world. i freaking LOVE the art ass, and will continue to support it like family should.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

.....educating tourists about the intensely rich history of provincetown as a creative little fishing village.
