The Wellfleet Cultural District unveiled the 2019 Wellfleet beach/transfer station stickers by Wellfleet artist Tom Baratz during Massachusetts ArtWeek in April. Baratz is a renowned nature and outdoor photographer with permanent installations at the International Center of Photography in Edinburgh and at Castle Hill Center for the Arts in Truro. For its inaugural year, Baratz had three photos selected for the new Sticker program.
The work of a different Wellfleet artist will be chosen by application to grace the annual beach/transfer station stickers every year. The Cultural District’s goal is to increase public awareness of Wellfleet’s renowned cultural treasures – our local artists and numerous art galleries. The Wellfleet Cultural District and the Wellfleet Department of Community Services are partnering on the project. Beach stickers may be purchased at the Beach Sticker Office at the Town Pier beginning June 8th, Wellfleet residents may purchase them online until this day. There will also be a dedicated table at the seasonal Beach Sticker Office highlighting daily art, cultural, recreational and historical activities and environmental experiences in Wellfleet.
The Wellfleet Cultural District was established by the Massachusetts Cultural Council in 2017. Its purpose is to create rich cultural experiences that improve our quality of life, foster growth and economic vitality and celebrate the authentic artistic, cultural and natural resources of our special town. A free brochure and map mark the Cultural District’s walkable loop from the Village Center to Wellfleet Harbor, including many of the town’s restaurants, galleries, theaters, gift shops, and marina, public library and community cultural centers.
