Biography Vernon Herbert Coleman
Vernon Coleman (1898-1978) was an art teacher at the Osterville Bay School and Barnstable High School on Cape Cod for over 25 years. He was also a WPA artist and painted beautiful seascapes of Cape Cod during the 1920s and beyond.
Last year, seven murals were discovered behind a false wall in a Hyannis restaurant. They were donated to the museum by the property owner, restored by the museum, and now are on display for all to enjoy.
Coleman spent hours studying the water and waves with his young son to, in his words, "simply get it right." The murals represent snapshots in time capturing the essence of Cape Cod's nautical landscape.
