The Fine Arts Work Center is located on Pearl Street in the heart of Provincetown, steps from the cultural and commercial center of town and surrounded by the beauty of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
During the summer months, we present an open enrollment Workshop Program featuring nearly 70 different classes, exhibitions, open studios, free public readings, and other community events.
From October through April, we are a private residence for Fellows. Visits during this time take place during public events listed on our events calendar or by appointment only.
The administrative offices are open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM. Please contact staff directly to arrange your appointment.
