Artwork on Loan
An “Art on Loan program” for local artists to temporarily display their work on meeting room walls around Barnstable Town Hall has begun. The pieces are for display only, artwork will not be sold on Town property. Information on the artist is provided for those wishing to obtain further details.
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.
