    The Commons: Where Magic Happens

    June 22, 2021

    The Commons is a place you NEED to know about.

    The story of the Provincetown Commons started with education: the building was a school and a community center before moving into its current incarnation. It was actually standing empty when in 2017 the town select board agreed to lease the former center to a nonprofit group with a vision of a home for creativity in Provincetown, a space for people to work collaboratively—or just in the company of other artists and thinkers.

    The space comprises nearly 10,000 square feet of art studios, co-working facilities, and video conferencing rooms, as well as a large event space. Art is hung in the Edie Windsor Exhibition Hall, and the artists’ studios are always full.

    The Commons is a place where magic happens. People communicate. Light and color are appreciated and captured on canvas and in words. Not surprisingly, the tagline entices: Create. Innovate. Collaborate.
