The permanent collection is an important measure of any museum’s value. At PAAM, the holdings of local and regional art is extensive and dynamic, comprising over 3,000 works by over 700 Twentieth Century and contemporary artists who have worked in Provincetown and on Cape Cod. Their styles were revolutionary and remain noteworthy in the history of American Art. The PAAM Collection weaves together at least three major art movements—each a significant strand of American art history—and creates perspectives that uniquely position the Provincetown Art Colony as a pertinent fixture to the larger art world.
An exhibition of artists who through contemporary interpretation are exploring what it means to portray the female persona. Rediscovering the art of depiction, informed by historic imagery each artist translates their own construction of identity as it questions the face of femininity.
In 1950 with the announcement of the construction of a state bathhouse on the "New Beach" at Provincetown, steps were already being taken to prevent the "honky tonk" influence from creeping in via "mobile hawkers" or any "catch penny device". Never the less the bathhouse was constructed and open to the public in 1953.
The paintings in this exhibit are a tribute to the 1950's era bathhouse and the concession stand that withstood the test of time and neglect providing millions of visitors with a restroom, a place to shower and change and perhaps a hotdog, a grilled cheese and a good humor ice cream.
