Established as a grass roots organization in 1975 by a committed group of citizens, the Danforth Museum of Art has grown to become a vital cultural resource. Located in Framingham, Massachusetts, 30 miles west of Boston, the Museum provides visitors with entertaining and educational experiences in the visual arts. The Danforth educates the public through its collection of American art, changing exhibits of contemporary artists, classes and workshops in the Museum School, and a variety of community outreach programs.

Focusing on American art from 18th century to present day, the Danforth Museum of Art is dedicated to showing the very best examples of contemporary art by both emerging and established artists, as well as an exploration of the School of Boston Expressionism. Our compelling exhibitions and permanent collection of over 3,500 works of art offer countless opportunities for all ages to explore a range of media and artistic forms of expression. Our mission strongly supports education, the 400 yearly studio art courses offered in the Museum School, family workshops and artist lectures offer Museum members and visitors numerous opportunities to learn and create.

The Danforth Museum and School of Art actively engages its communities within an intimate environment to experience, create, and celebrate the expressive qualities of art through exhibitions, educational programs, and studio art classes.
