An Update from David
Black Lives Matter: Restoring My African Soul
Saturday, August 8 at 7:00pm

This 5-part monthly series of consciousness-raising events and conversations with Robin and Jim Miller will kick off on Saturday, August 8 at 7pm with a presentation of “Restoring My African Soul,” a multi-media performance addressing an artist’s struggle from black shame to African-American pride through art and poetry.

Robin and Jim, in collaboration with Cotuit Center for the Arts, will host four future events, one each month through the end of the year with a goal of engaging the local community in conversations and cultural experiences surrounding the specific challenges of racial diversity and inclusion on the Cape.

Due to Covid-19, seating will be limited. Events may be recorded and streamed at a later date. CCftA follows all safety protocols related to Covid-19 and may be viewed on our website.

In The Galleries—Opening Saturday

Artist Jane Lincoln’s lifelong exploration of color converges with her outrage over the epidemic of gun violence in “More than ENOUGH.” The exhibition features several series of paintings, prints, and drawings based on color interaction; the forty-one works in her series “ENOUGH,” depicting mass shootings in the United States; her new series “Quarantine Diary,” which chronicles the impact of Covid-19 on our lives; and even "More."

Exhibit will be on display August 8–September 19. No public opening reception.

Gallery admission is free during Gallery hours and by appointment.
Gallery hours: Wed–Sat, 10am–4pm
Coming Soon

A cabaret of favorite songs from Tommy, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and Death and the Maiden, to be live-streamed FREE from the Cotuit Stage.
