Provincetown is America’s oldest still-active art colony, and in 1914 the Provincetown Art Association and Museum was established, in part, to exhibit and collect works of art created by Provincetown artists.

With more than 3,000 works by more than 700 artists who have lived or worked on the outer Cape, the collection is an historical record of the original Provincetown art colony. PAAM continues to increase the number and range of works by earlier artists and to include works by contemporary artists.
