Whether you’re an artist or an art appreciator, PAAM Membership opens the door to programs that enrich and inspire.

PAAM members are the heart and soul of our organization. Annual membership dues help finance extraordinary feats, like world-class exhibitions and free after-school art classes for Cape Cod youth. In exchange, our small, dedicated staff of year-rounders provide high-quality creative programming and access to the Museum’s most important assets.
