MassArt to Open Free, Contemporary Art Museum in Boston Next Year

The Massachusetts College of Art and Design plans to open a free, new contemporary art museum in Boston in early 2020.

The new museum, which will be called the MassArt Art Museum, or MAAM, is part of a renovation project to fully transform the existing Bakalar and Paine Galleries at MassArt on Huntington Street in Boston. The new museum’s brand will be “welcoming, vibrant, fun, and a bit unexpected," according to the college.
