When: PAAM Gala is in October 2021

Where: Provincetown Town Hall

About: The PAAM Gala party is an annual celebration of art and artists. PAAM has always championed the advancement of art and encouraged artists to explore its boundaries. Every October, we take the opportunity to honor the individuals and organizations who govern our association, compose our collections, teach our classes, and form our lifeblood. Through a variety of media, they enlighten, educate, and inspire us. Please note that, unlike in other years, this year’s Gala is not on Columbus Day Weekend.

The party and “dance the night away” gala are at Town Hall. More information is at the gala website.

PAAM was established in 1914 by a group of artists and townspeople to build a permanent collection of works by artists of outer Cape Cod, and to exhibit art that would allow for unification within the community. In 2014, PAAM celebrated its Centennial year, with programming and exhibitions that highlighted significant artists, artwork, and events that contributed to PAAM becoming the vital cultural institution it is today.

Integral to the community comprising the Provincetown Art Colony, PAAM embodies the qualities that make Provincetown an enduring American center for the arts, and serves as Cape Cod’s most widely-attended art museum.

As interest in the region’s contribution to American art history continues to grow, PAAM presents an ever-changing lineup of exhibitions, lectures, workshops and cultural events that seek to promote and cultivate appreciation for all branches of the fine arts for which Provincetown is known.
