The HYArts district nurtures and celebrates the creativity and talent of established and emerging Cape Cod artists.

Visual Arts

The Town of Barnstable recognizes the importance of arts and culture as part of any economic revitalization, and continues to establish Hyannis as a regional center for creative and performing arts.  Local artists are supported in expanding their practice and connecting with the community through programs and spaces such as the HyArts Shanties, the Guyer Barn, public art installations, and more.

Town of Barnstable "Artwork on Loan" Program

This opportunity is available for local artists to temporarily display their work on the meeting room walls in the Selectman’s Conference Room and the Town Hall Hearing Room.  The artist benefits in the exposure to the many people who pass through town hall every day and those visiting and using the meeting rooms will find an inviting and culturally rich environment.  

The pieces are for display only-artwork may not be sold on Town property. Information on the artist is provided for those wishing to obtain further details. For more information on the program email
