Highlands Center Public Art
Partners and Volunteers Engage in Collective Artistic Action
Highlands Center at Cape Cod National Seashore is a special place in the park for artistic expression. New public art works complement the cultural programming occurring onsite by Payomet Performing Arts Center and Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill.
Fostering engagement in the site, Highlands Center partners have contributed creative expressions by painting colorful, evocative murals. From their conception by AmeriCorps Cape Cod members - to their completion by adults and children at annual public festivals - the celebratory murals showcase natural resource management and volunteerism through art.
Please check back to this page for the site's evolving artistic expressions.
