Story | Aug 18, 2011Fittingly, The Tides of Provincetown: Pivotal Years in America's Oldest Continuous Art Colony, 1899-2011 — a sparkling exhibition at the New Britain Museum of American Art up through Oct. 16, 2011 — opens with a map. Not just any map but a giant panoramic bird's-eye view of Provincetown and upper Cape Cod. This visual aid perfectly encapsulates the insular feel of Provincetown, which sits on a crooked finger of land at the Cape's very tip, 70 miles from "mainland" Massachusetts. This finger of land spirals inward, so that Provincetown essentially surrounds itself. Thus protected from outside scrutiny and judgment, town residents have been free to be and do things that might have been forbidden or suppressed elsewhere.
