Danforth Art Museum\School

123 Union Avenue , Framingham, MA 01702

Established as a grass roots organization in 1975 by a committed group of citizens, civic leaders, business owners, educators, and artists, Danforth Art provides exhibitions and education programs that fulfill its mission to engage, inspire and transform the lives of children and adults. Danforth Art educates the public through its permanent collection of American art from the 18th century to the present day, which includes outstanding examples of work by the African American sculptor Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller and Boston Expressionism artists, as well as through changing exhibitions of contemporary artists, studio art classes and workshops, and a variety of community outreach programs. Each year Danforth Art’s annual juried exhibitions demonstrate the organization’s dedication to provide “a special home for artists” by showing best examples of contemporary work by emerging and established artist members.
