About

Plymouth Center for the Arts had it beginnings some 50 years ago as the Plymouth Outdoor Art Show  (a.k.a. the Tent Show) on the waterfront in Brewster Gardens. This annual art show quickly became a tremendous success attracting artists and visitors from all over the region, with 20 years on the waterfront and then moving to several different locations until 2008 when the organization opened Plymouth Center for the Arts on North Street in the historic Russell Library.
