Heritage Museums & Gardens celebrates American culture and inspires people of all ages to explore, discover and learn together. We do this through excellence in horticulture, garden design, outdoor discovery and the exhibition of great collections.
Heritage is partnering with The Cape and Islands Workforce Investment Board to present the 2015 ArtWorks School to Career Partnership program. ArtWorks was started in 1997 to connect students with working artists across the Cape and Islands. Up to forty high school juniors and seniors participate in an eight-week internship with area artists in disciplines including painting, photography, illustration, pottery, and graphic design. The experience culminates in an exhibit of artwork created by students and their mentors. Visit the exhibit at the following venues: Wellfleet Preservation Hall: June 6-June 21 Cape Cod Museum of Art: June 27-July 12 Massachusetts State House: July 16-August 16
Explore these artistic shelters tucked around Heritage’s trees, hills and hidden spaces! Featuring designs by artists and architects for contemplating nature, practicing the art of meditation, writing poetry, gazing at the heavens and more. Exhibit runs June 6-October 15. Free with museum admission.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to view paintings by three generations of one of America’s best known art families, the Wyeths. You’ll see works by N.C., Andrew, and Jamie Wyeth exhibited together- many on loan from private collectors, including Andrew Wyeth’s evocative Master Bedroom. Exhibit runs June 6 – September 27. Free with museum admission.
Victoria Wyeth will be the museum’s special guest on the exhibit’s opening day. The granddaughter of Andrew Wyeth and the niece of Jamie Wyeth, she will share her insights about her family’s art that has touched many Americans, and stories about growing up as a Wyeth. She will present four gallery tours throughout the day, including a children’s tour at 11am. Each afternoon tour will be followed by an opportunity to purchase the book Andrew Wyeth: Autobiography by Thomas Hoving and have it signed by Ms. Wyeth. Free with museum admission. No advance registration required.
