Mission and Legacy

For over 50 years, the Fine Arts Work Center has provided time and space to emerging artists and writers at crucial early stages of creative development within a community of peers. The founders hoped that the Work Center would perpetuate Provincetown’s seminal importance for the arts in America, overcoming modest means and geographic isolation to create an internationally acclaimed institution. The restoration and amplification of the year-round vitality of Provincetown as a historic artists’ community lies at the heart of the Work Center’s mission. All of our programs are dedicated to enhancing this legacy.
