Art — and artists — are the connective tissue between all of us right now.

Even with our gallery, performance and events spaces closed, BCA continues to be a creative laboratory that provides artists of all disciplines the freedom to experiment, take risks, and produce new boundary-breaking work that challenges, provokes, and defines the Boston cultural experience.

Thanks to your generosity throughout the pandemic, we have maintained our studio spaces, introduced new residencies, and supported our artists as they sought to re-imagine artmaking and exhibiting work in new ways. Every dollar that you gave this past year has had a profound impact during this critical time. 

As we march into spring, we hope that you will support our current campaign The Future Forward—an ambitious goal to raise $150,000 by June 30, 2021 in celebration of our 50th year!
