The Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is celebrating its centennial this year, and they’re transforming the community into an interactive art exhibit to mark the occasion. re[Framing] Provincetown: Animating History through Sharing fuses the past and the present, placing Provincetown artworks at their subject points and juxtaposing them with empty frames. The contrast between seeing the art and artist’s original viewpoint showcases the town’s beauty as well as its importance in the North American artistic world. Dispersed throughout the city in 25 locations, the project, conceived and curated by TsAO & McKOWN, also encourages viewer interaction. The empty frame practically begs to be filled with personal and social interactions, an ideal arrangement for appreciating 100-year-old art in today’s modern world.

re[Framing] Provincetown will be up through October 19. If you’re around New England, be sure to stop through and share your new Provincetown memories and experiences via #reframingptown!
