ArtsBoston is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the arts.
Founded in 1999 by Carol Barry and Kate Sullivan (founding members), Jessica Barry, Jen Lewis, Lydia Polanco, Luanne Witkowski. Also joining, Bill Commerford, Arthur Birkland, and Maggie Cohn (former Mission Hill Main Streets, Director). Many more residents did join the group and exhibited with MHAC since then.
Throughout the years, MHAC has developed new initiatives for community residents-artists to join. We provides support to each artist by promoting their own exhibition outside of the community and find resources that aid the artists in their quest for spaces to showcase.
Our goals include providing opportunities to show art in the Mission Hill community and throughout the City of Boston. We look to unite neighboring artists in dialogue, to discuss and reflect upon the ideas and intentions of our creative endeavors. The Collectives’ mission is to learn from one another and create ways for community folks to learn with us. We welcome artists of any media – and residents – to collaborate in exhibiting, planning, and promoting art events within this diverse community of Mission Hill.
The Mission Hill Artists Collective is composed of dedicated, multi-ethnic, various aged, resident members, arts supporters, and volunteers. We have delightedly and successfully orchestrated exhibitions since 1999 in our neighborhood as well as in Scollay Square Gallery/Boston City Hall, Parker Hill Branch-Boston Public Library, Middle East Cafe, The Brand House, Graystar Exhibition Space in Ca
