Upcoming Exhibitions

Artwork by Ric Howard

The Cape Cod Museum of Art and The Cape Playhouse are partnering to launch an international call for visual artists for the Cape Playhouse Cover Art Competition 2020.  Serving for visibility at the nation’s longest running professional summer theatre, the competition will award the winner with a dedicated appearance on the Playhouse’s 2020 performance program covers, numbering more than 35,000 booklets for this summer season alone, along with other visibility opportunities.  The winning work will also be the centerpiece at an unveiling event to be held on Friday, May 1 at the Cape Cod Museum of Art.


The Cape Playhouse Cover Art Competition 2020 is held in two rounds.  Interested applicant artists may submit a sampling portfolio of up to three examples of their work for first round consideration by March 16, 2020.  The portfolio submission should demonstrate proficiency in interpreting an uplifting narrative on the competition’s chosen theme of “summer play”. From the international applications, a panel of judges will select five visual artists, graphic designers and/or illustrators semi-finalists. The chosen five artists, notified by March 18, will then create their vision for the cover of the 2020 Cape Playhouse program cover. One of the covers will be selected and featured prominently “center stage” on the cover of the 2020 Cape Playhouse Program Cover with a circulation of 35,000, along with other prestigious honors, awards, and exhibition opportunities at the Cape Playhouse and the Cape Cod Museum of Art.

Insight into INTERIORS

March 12 - April 19

Join us for a new perspective on the INTERIORS exhibition! Docents will be selecting pieces from the Permanent Collection on the INTERIORS theme.

INTERIORS can mean various things to different people. It can be a representational viewpoint from inside a home, workplace, studio or cafe - often it can have a nostalgic sensibility or invoke a feeling of security. A person might identify with a place of worship, or even a forest, to express their internal self or internalized feelings and emotions may resonate within an artwork.



Gallery Talk - Friday, March 13 at 4:00
