One of the unique aspects of Cape Cod is the way in which the peninsula hides myriad coves, beaches, and unexplored villages. Once such unheralded destination is the Barnstable village Cotuit, which is situated between Falmouth and Hyannis, and is known for the relative peace and quiet its sandy beaches and rocky coves afford.
Attracting artists and cultural lovers for many years, Cotuit offers a surprising diversity of art museums, music venues, and craft fairs. The Cotuit Center is a cultural hub that offers a range of theater productions and art exhibits, while providing community classes for all ages.
Situated in the landmark Crocker House, the Cahoon Museum of American Art reflects the legacy of folk artists Ralph and Martha Cahoon, while celebrating the diversity of the American experience.
Recent exhibitions include "Through the Looking Glass: Daguerreotype Masterworks from the Dawn of Photography” and an environmental installation by Konstantin Dimopoulos “The Blue Trees.” The latter exhibit features trees on the property being dyed a biologically safe blue pigment, which will gradually fade to the trees’ natural shades.
