New Passport to the Arts to be Unveiled May 3

Discounts to forty Cape theaters, museums, historical sites and performances

CENTERVILLE - The Arts Foundation of Cape Cod is proud to announce the release of the 2007-2008 Passport to the Arts, which offers a one-time 50% discount on admission to 40 Cape Cod theaters, museums, historical sites, and performances. The 2007-2008 Passport to the Arts is underwritten by the Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank Charitable Foundation Trust and will be available for purchase online at on May 4.

"The Passport to the Arts is the best purchase an arts lover on Cape Cod can make," says Lisa Hergenrother, Executive Director of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. "It offers the opportunity to visit 40 of the finest cultural treasures in our region at a significant discount, and supports the year-round program of work of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod."

Now in its fourth year, the Passport to the Arts has evolved from a small group of eight organizations to its current impressive roster of 40 cultural organizations, representing the very best of the arts and culture of Cape Cod.

The Passport is a beautifully designed, souvenir-quality booklet with information about each participating organization.

Passport holders will be able to receive a 50% discount on admission to select events at each participating venue once during the course of the year.

Each member venue sets its own restrictions and rules of use, so Passport holders must call venues in advance to ensure availability.

Passports will be available after May 3, 2007, and may be ordered online or by calling the Arts Foundation at 508-362-0066.

Each Passport costs $20 and the 2007 Passport will be valid through May 2008.
