About this Organization:
Art in Suburbia is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide art, education, and awareness to suburban communities throughout Massachusetts for social impact. Founded in 2017, Art in Suburbia’s objectives are to provide an outlet for artistic and creative expression and exploration, foster community engagement, and promote social and sustainable development through its mission-programs. Art in Suburbia is a direct response to the lack of art institutions in suburban neighborhoods. The value of the organization is built on the accessibility of art. Art is supplied not only to educate, but to bridge cultural gaps through collaborated efforts, creating opportunities for growth and social change.
