Arts at the Airport- Barnstable Municipal Airport – July & Aug 2019

A variety of Cape Cod artists and artisans featured each week

HYANNIS, MA, July 16, 2019—A new arts ‘pilot’ program is taking flight at the Barnstable Municipal Airport!  Every Thursday through Sunday, July 18 through August 11, from 11:30am-1:30pm, travelers can meet Cape Cod artists at vendor tables set up in the terminal at the main entrance.  Artwork is handmade, crafted or designed in a variety of mediums: fiber arts, jewelry, photography home accessories, painting and maritime themed items.  A variety of artists will rotate throughout the four week program.

Barnstable Municipal Airport is for more than taking flights, it’s about the community in which it resides and offering both locals and visitors alike a sense of place on Cape Cod. Locals are encouraged to stop by and grab a treat at Cape Cod Coffee, serving pastries, lunch, beer and wine; watch the planes and visit the artists.  Free parking,  up to one half hour.
