UNBOUND Campaign

Unbound Campaign GIF

Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s Bakalar & Paine Galleries are a venue unlike any other, offering professionally and imaginatively curated exhibitions featuring influential, emerging and well-known artists from throughout the world of contemporary art in the largest free contemporary art space in New England.

The UNBOUND campaign will fund a transformative revitalization of the galleries that will free the exhibition spaces from their current constraints—making them more inviting to the community; expanding the calendar and breadth of programming; improving public access; increasing student opportunities for inspiration, education, and career preparation; and ultimately raising the reputation of both the Bakalar & Paine Galleries and MassArt.
