Danforth Art is a Museum and School that invites you to see, learn about, create, and be inspired by art. In May, 2016, we received notice from the Town of Framingham that we must vacate the Danforth Building at 123 Union Avenue by the fall of 2016. We appreciate your patience during this transition and invite you to learn more here.
*Please Note: We anticipate occasional disruptions to business operations during the upcoming relocation, and apologize for any delays in communications. We encourage you to contact any staff member at Info (at) danforthart.org as this email address will be monitored at all times. We will do our best to keep our Facebook page up to date during all transitions as well, and encourage you to check there if you are unable to reach us.
Danforth Art Museum will close to the public at the close of business on Sunday, August 21, 2016, in preparation for our move. Please see the upcoming exhibitions page for information about opportunities to view our exhibitions at offsite locations this winter and beyond.
