The Cahoon Museum of American art presents Paul Moro: A Painter’s Journey.

This exhibit is the most comprehensive and scholarly survey of the expansive body of work Moro created and presents 85 original paintings, which have never before been exhibited on Cape Cod and rarely shown elsewhere, installed in 5 galleries of the Museum. The exhibition opens to the public on Wednesday, March 15 and continues through Sunday, April 30.
