At the beginning of the 20th century, Provincetown became a beacon for artists. Since then, artists have found a home throughout Cape Cod and the Islands. This area hosts three industry-recognized film festivals: The Nantucket Film Festival, the Woods Hole Film Festival and Martha's Vineyard Independent Film Festival. Local talent and artists are on display at theaters, museums and musical events that happen all year.
The Cape Cod Museum of Art was founded to preserve and display art produced by local artists. Their exhibits include paintings, etchings, printmaking and works by influential Cape Cod and American artists like Charles Hawthorne, Henry Hensche and Hans Hoffman.
The Cape Cod Melody Tent draws national musical acts, comedians and children's shows throughout the year. From September to May, the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra performs 20 concerts in Barnstable.
Shakespeare on the Cape performs throughout the Cape Cod area. The Cape Cod Opera produces fully staged productions. The Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater productions have received praise from the Boston Globe and The New York Times.
