Community Bulletin Board

On summer evenings in 2023, PAAM’s Sculpture Garden welcomed visitors to contribute to the Community Bulletin Board, a community-created art piece using pushpins and a large bulletin board.

Community Bulletin Board is an interactive art project in conjunction with Art Reach, PAAM’s youth education program, and engaging the broader PAAM audience. Participants play a key role in realizing this project, which is both a public interactive piece, and a way to come together as a community. It is a creative space to explore mark-making, referencing pointillism to pixelation while using everyday materials. Some historical art and cultural references are George Seurat, Yayoi Kusama, Alma Thomas, Roy Lichtenstein, Aboriginal art, mosaic, cross stitch, Lite-Brite and Minecraft.

Participants are asked to grab a handful of push pins, make your mark, connect the dots, draw and interact with each others’ marks. Let’s play and have fun! The Community Bulletin Board will be making periodic indoor appearances throughout the winter of 2023-24, and will return to the Sculpture Garden summer of 2024.

This program is supported in part by grants from the Provincetown Cultural Council, Wellfleet Cultural Council, and Truro Cultural Council, local agencies which are supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. This program is also supported by an anonymous donor. Thank you to all of our donors for their generous support.
