Recognizing the importance of the arts in a vibrant community, the Town of Barnstable has established the HyArts (Hyannis Arts) District to enhance and enrich the quality of life for residents and visitors by coordinating and supporting activities promoting arts and culture. The HyArts Cultural District nurtures and celebrates the creativity and talent of established and emerging Cape Cod Artists. It includes the Guyer Barn, a community arts center; artist studios; a gallery; marked cultural walks; a park and village green for festivals and performing arts events and, during the warm weather season, Artist Shanties where local artists make and sell their work.
The Town has partnered with many local and regional arts organizations to establish the Hyannis HyArts Cultural District as a regional center for the creative and performing arts.
Our partners include the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Cape Cod Art Association, Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District, Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, Hyannis Area Chamber of Commerce, Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce and Town of Barnstable.
