Founded in 1955, South Shore Art Center’s (SSAC) mission is to enrich the communities south of Boston by engaging artists and by fostering an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions and education.
For 64 years we have worked tirelessly to meet this mission by installing thought-provoking exhibitions; hosting unforgettable events; providing a space for making art; and offering courses and workshops to assist artistic growth and journeys. More than 1,000 members strong, our geographic reach extends to 45 communities south of Boston. We have grown to become a key anchor for the region’s vibrant and thriving art community, each year welcoming nearly 20,000 individuals – of all ages, abilities and incomes – to exciting visual arts experiences held in our facility and at satellite sites.
In the coming year, South Shore Art Center has exciting plans to build on our impact, with more targeted outreach to teens and elders, strategic partnerships with community groups serving disenfranchised populations, and new directions in our educational programming. We also plan to invest in the organizational systems and infrastructure to support and sustain this strategic growth to increase our reach and impact.
