A traveling exhibit highlighting the first fifty years of Cape Cod National Seashore will be on display at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum for the month of June.
"Cape Cod National Seashore at 50" was created by Truro artist, Cathy Skowron. It captures the history and ambience of the national seashore through photographs, publications, plant and animal models, historic objects, and memorabilia. It was designed to be adaptable to a variety of community settings. It will be on display at the Brewster Ladies Library in July, the Truro Library in August, and Snow Library in September. The months of October through December are available; organizations operating in a public building that has a locking glass case are invited to inquire about hosting the exhibit. Contact Event Ranger Molly Williams at (508) 957-0704 for information.
