Reflecting on Our Past as We Build Our Future

Boston Center for the Arts is a cultural catalyst, incubating the inventive and highly original artistic endeavors that are rising in sync with one of America’s greatest intellectual and innovation hubs; recalibrating our collective notion of the contemporary arts experience.

Cultural Catalyst

Both a creative incubator of bold artistic expression and a contemporary curator of the Boston arts experience, BCA brings the arts to life – to lives – in an engaging and lively cultural community.

Inspiring Change

In service to Boston’s creatives and our public audiences, we offer large-scale, transdisciplinary events and programming in our iconic Cyclorama space. To incubate provocative works of theatre, dance, music, and performance art, we offer access to space where there otherwise would be none. We invite contemporary art curators and cultural producers to present exhibitions in our Mills Gallery and public art on our plaza, pushing for new media and reimagined modes of social interaction.
