Visitors will find something handmade, hand designed or hand crafted by local artists in two locations along the Walkway-to-the-Sea, at the Harbor Overlook, 51 Ocean Street and Bismore Park, 180 Ocean Street, Hyannis.
A must stop on your way to or from Main Street (where you will find over 40 restaurants and 120 locally owned shops) you will discover Cape Cod artists working and selling their hand-made, crafted and designed wares. Work includes a variety of media, everything from ceramics, mosaics, and wood turning to fiber art, paintings, jewelry, photography and more. There is no fee to browse and of course if purchases are made it is a fabulous way to shop local and support the creative economy.
The shanties are named for the town’s seven villages and each shanty at Bismore Park features past and present images of the villages.
The Harbor Overlook shanties are named for town beaches.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
The program, which first started in 2005 with just 11 artists, has expanded to now include up to 100 artists who rotate throughout the season, displaying their work at two locations along the Walkway-to-the-Sea. The Town run artist shanty program provides affordable rental space for Cape Cod artists and artisans to work and sell at these “seaside studios”.
This program provides prime visibility and opportunities for artists to gain and improve business, marketing and selling skills, connect with other artists and meet visitors from around the region and the world.
