We are building a community of individuals who want to support and extend Twenty Summers’ mission. To do so we are offering a limited number of 2019 Season Memberships that offer Early Bird Ticket Access, Special Events, Merchandise and more.
In 1907, Charles Webster Hawthorne, the 35-year-old son of a sea captain, built a barn-like studio on a sandy bluff in Provincetown on the tip of Cape Cod. Hawthorne was an Impressionist painter. And he turned the barn into the Cape Cod School of Art–the first in America to hold outdoor sessions.
In the weekdays between our events, we welcome artists into the Barn to live and work in the space, and share their experiences at Open Studios on the final night of their residency. Learn more about the painters, musicians, and photographers who joined us in our past seasons.
