MASSART X SOWA MISSION
The MassArt x SoWa graduate gallery mission is to exhibit high quality work in a broad range of media from emerging and established artists in the MassArt community. The gallery features the thesis work of our Master of Fine Arts students and premier work from our graduate design programs, as well as curatorial projects, alumni exhibitions, student and faculty curated shows, and collaborative exhibitions with our community partners.
As the first independent state-supported public college of art and design in the nation, MassArt is committed to being part of the public conversation–to providing opportunities for entrepreneurial and socially engaged work. The gallery is designed to reflect MassArt’s commitment to diversity and to expanding the ways that MassArt provides access to arts education beyond the walls of our college.
