Cape Cod National Seashore will exhibit works from dune shack visits and residencies as its Perspectives: Seeing Cape Cod National Seashore through Art resumes in September. The exhibition is curated by the Peaked Hill Trust, which offers arts and sciences residencies at dune shacks it operates under its permit with Cape Cod National Seashore.

This residency program encourages a broad sweep of creative projects in the arts and sciences, including architecture, the healing arts, environment and science, performing arts, journalism and cultural history. Selectees spend one to two weeks in a dune shack. The experience provides immersion into this special resource within the national seashore while setting the stage for inspiration and learning. The exhibition includes an eclectic array of work and topics, including erosion studies, nocturnal wildlife, writings on the Gulf Stream, short essays by an entomologist, conservation and landscape architecture, and even work from a puppeteer.
