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.

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.

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.

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.
