The Town of Barnstable recognizes the importance of arts and culture as part of any economic revitalization, and continues to establish Hyannis as a regional center for creative and performing arts.

Prior to recently establishing The Hyannis HyArts Cultural District Barnstable first introduced the Hyannis Harbor Shanties and Harbor Your Arts (HyA) program in the summer of 2005 as a key component of the downtown Hyannis revitalization initiative to support the creative economy and foster economic growth. The shanties are a welcome addition to Hyannis Harbor. The artist shanties provide a unique, affordable harbor-front location for our local artists to create and sell their work. The program has been well received by Cape residents, visitors and the arts and culture community.

In 2006 the program expanded to include the performing arts, providing free family entertainment at Aselton Park, a beautiful waterfront location on the Harbor, near the artist shanties.

Be sure to take a stroll along the Hyannis HyArts Cultural District Walkway to the Sea. The Town has actively pursued and initiated the installation of various public art pieces in the downtown and waterfront areas of Hyannis. For example, currently, visitors to Hyannis harbor can enjoy the seasonal public art installation, Buoyed Coasts, which consists of 50 lobster buoys mounted on 12’-19’ poles in ornamental grass beds. The buoys frame the harbor and create a display of color, light and kinetic motion drawing activity and attention to Aselton Park. Buoyed Coasts was awarded the Honor Award by the Boston Society of Landscape Architects.

The Town’s visual arts program has continued to expand over the years, including a campus of town-owned properties at the corner of Pearl and South Streets in Hyannis. In 2007 the Town acquired two run down properties on Pearl Street and converted them to artist live and work space. From this humble beginning, a campus of buildings that provide living, work and gallery space has been developed as part of the Shirley Blair Flynn Center for the Creative Arts. The campus includes the historic Guyer Barn, Gallery Artrio and Bass River Pottery.  The town's first artist-in-residence  at 46 Pearl housed Sarah for many years.  Sarah's unique sense of space was fundamental to the beginning roots of the HyArts Campus. Sarah's studio is now at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in Yarmouth. While at 46 Pearl, 2007-April, 2016:  Sarah Holl’s ArtSpace.   Pearl Street is located between bustling Main Street and the harbor front, where the popular HyArts Shanties are open throughout the summer, offering artists and artisans space to create and sell their work.

The Town offers an "artwork on loan" program for local artists to temporarily display their work on the meeting room walls in the Selectman’s Conference Room and the Town Hall Hearing Room. The pieces are for display only-artwork may not be sold on Town property. Information on the artist is provided for those wishing to obtain further details. For more information on the program emailmelissa.hersh@town.barnstable.ma.us

Those visiting and using the meeting rooms will now find an inviting and culturally rich environment. This program provides an opportunity for our local artists to benefit from this exposure to so many who pass through town hall every day. Spreading the love of art one wall at a time-it’s a wonderful opportunity to see local art! Arts and culture programming is one component of our overall economic strategy.

Tides

Tides

Tides is an inspirational sculpture by potter Steven Kemp, cast from the sand patterns of Cape Cod's coastal waters. Read more from the artist (.pdf) located on the HyArts Campus on the corner of Pearl and South Street.  Pearl Street plays an important role as part of the Town-owned properties on the arts campus at the corner of South and Pearl, a unique artist live / work space developed by the Town of Barnstable which also includes the Guyer Barn and Sarah Holl ArtSpace.

TIDES:
What is it?  A 9 foot clay monolith cast from the sand patterns created by Cape Cod’s coastal waters. 

How  did this public art happen?  Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce received MCC funding for public art placemaking projects along with additional funding from the Mid Cape Cultural council and private donors. The Town identified the site.  Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce issued a call to artists.  Nine artists submitted proposals.  Two juries of outside experts and town liaisons selected Steven Kemp’s Tides monolith.  The Coastal Engineering donated engineered installation instructions; installation and site work donated by Maffei Landscaping.  The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce gifted this pubic art to the Town of Barnstable.  Tides was installed in June of 2015.

Why in Hyannis?  The Hyannis HyArts Cultural District celebrates the area’s rich heritage of art, history, and culture.  The Pearl Street Arts Campus in the this state designated Cultural District is the ideal location for this place inspired art. Located steps away from Hyannis Harbor this lovely sculpture expresses what inspires our Cape Cod artists.  The scale and artistry of the Tides sculpture gives our visitors an opportunity to become inspired themselves.

Sturgis Library “Off the Shelf” Art Project

Sturgis Library “Off the Shelf” Art Project

February 28, 2017

Create a piece of art from a piece of Sturgis Library! Stop by the Sturgis Library’s Circulation Desk and ask for a shelf from old 1920s bookshelves that were stored for many years in the basement. Take the shelf home and transform it into something new. Paint on it, sculpt it, carve it, cut it up, sand it down — whatever inspires you. Then donate it back to the Library by August 1st, 2017 to be auctioned off at the Library’s 150th Anniversary gala.

All proceeds from these works of art will benefit the newly established Sturgis Library Preservation Fund. Monies from this fund will be used exclusively for the preservation of the Library’s building, grounds, special collections, and archives.
