"Cape Cod: Outside In, Upside Down"

Discover this multi-disciplinary arts exhibition where the Cultural Center's Great Hall is

transformed into an indoor lawn with larger than life art installations. 


The exhibition will be presented in the Great Hall, Vault and Blue Galleries from  July 23–September 17, 2022.

Tickets are $10 for adults and children under 16 are FREE! No need to purchase in advance, get your tickets at the door.

Warm weather, live music, trips to the ice cream shop, long evenings, cookouts, giggling children, and toes in the grass are some highlights of a well-spent summer. From July 23 to September 17, the Cultural Center brings those highlights INSIDE our building with our new exhibition Cape Cod: Outside In, Upside Down. So get ready for summer activities without needing bug spray and sunscreen!


The exhibition will turn summer on its artistic head as we transform the Great Hall into an indoor lawn, and the entire collection will hang from the gallery's ceiling. We invite you to enjoy the work by walking across the lawn, relaxing on Adirondack chairs created by local artists and makers, or laying on a giant beach towel! This exhibition is all about fun and family.


“For our 2022 exhibition, I wanted to create something that would connect to the heart of our family audience and community. Expanding our audience here at the Cultural Center is crucial for long-term sustainability, and we wanted to bring the Cape something surprising, artistic, and experiential,” explains Executive Director Molly Demeulenaere.


Cape Cod: Outside In, Upside Down is not only focused on the art of summer but also the human connections. The exhibition will also include a giant "sundae" playroom and Lego® build room to engage families and friends. Of course, what would summer be without live music? From the sounds of James Taylor, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles, there will be something for everyone at the Cultural Center this summer!


See you at the Center!
