Nantucket Island has had a vibrant arts scene for more than a century, thanks to the efforts of arts patron and summer resident Florence Lang, painter Frank Swift Chase, and artists Maud Stumm, Elizabeth Saltonstall and others. The Nantucket Art Colony was active from 1924 through 1943. Today, dozens of artists live and work on Nantucket: painters, sculptors, photographers, textile artists, and ceramists.
