    FACE TO FACE: Close Encounters with the Cape Cod Museum of Art’s Permanent Collection

    We may not all be mind readers, but we are face readers. Science has shown us that our brains have more space devoted to reading faces than to any other object. Which is why faces speak to us in such a deeply personal way.

    This new docent-curated exhibition brings viewers face to face with 34 artworks of every description: traditional portraits, abstract images, paintings, prints, mixed media and sculpture. Each face gazes out, drawing the viewer into a moment of silent communication. Some faces are easy to read, others challenge the imagination. One highly personal portrait uses transformative visual technology to project the viewer into a field of virtual faces. 

    According to Director of Art, Benton Jones, “This exhibition is all about celebrating our common humanity, which makes it especially appropriate that it is curated by our docents, a team of trained educators and guides who serve as the “face” of our museum. We look forward to sharing a truly eye-opening experience with all our visitors.”

    Admission includes entry to all other exhibitions at CCMoA including “Journey: A Mayflower 400 Project”, “Gatherings” and the Sculpture Garden.

    HOURS:  Thursday through Saturday, 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 12 to 4pm.
