In 1914, a group of Provincetown artists and businesspeople who supported the arts came together to build a collection of works by Outer Cape artists. Now, a century after that first group gathered, PAAM has collected 3,000 works and morphed into a pillar of the community, with exhibitions, lectures, workshops and cultural events. The contemporary wing, built onto an old captain’s house in 2006, has given the museum more space for exhibits and classes, not to mention an air of contemporary sophistication.
