Provincetown Art Barn Lives On

May 13, 2014


It's been 115 years since Charles Webster Hawthorne arrived in Provincetown. He came to paint and teach. No one knew at the time that the school he would start inside a small barn would mark the beginning of Provincetown's place in history as the nation's oldest art colony. Sean Corcoran talks with guests Joshua Prager, Ricky Opaterny, and Peter Casperson on The Point about the Barn's place in the art history world, and how it's been revived as a place to once again make art.
