In recent decades, the collection of the Cape Ann Museum has grown in all areas. This growth has strengthened the Museum’s standing within the community and throughout the region. Perhaps most importantly, it has broadened opportunities for visitors to experience firsthand the artistic and cultural diversity of one of this country’s oldest and most historically important places, Cape Ann.
On display is a selection of objects added to the Museum’s fine arts holdings in recent years including paintings, prints, sculpture and ceramics. The works came into the collection as gifts from private owners, from artists themselves and, on occasion, through purchases. Together they offer a glimpse into the extraordinarily rich artistic traditions of the area as well as into the vibrant art colony which exists in the community today.
