Budget History

The Provincetown Art Commission

In 1959 the Board of Selectmen created the Provincetown Art Commission and charged it with the responsibility for cataloging, appraising, restoring and maintaining the many works of art owned by the Town of Provincetown. The Commission meets regularly at Town Hall to develop policies for the care and management of the collection. They set priorities, review new gifts of art to the collection, and determine how best to care for, store and display it.

The Art Commission has developed a catalog of all works in the collection, has visually and digitally photographed the works, and set up a web site at Provincetown History Project.
