MISSION STATEMENT:

Boston Art Underground makes find art in Boston easier. No matter where you are in the city, world-class exhibitions and galleries are never more that short T ride away. Using the T map as a guide, Boston Art Underground’s one-click stop familiarizes its users with the art spaces in Boston and showcases local artists and organizations.

Through exposing more people to the wealth of exhibitions the Hub has to offer, Boston Art Underground engages and develops the arts-patron population and fosters a stronger artistic community in our city.

 

HOW TO USE THIS WEBSITE:

You can use the interactive map on the homepage to plan your next gallery excursion, find out what exhibition spaces are near you, and explore art venues in your neighborhood.

To navigate the map, click on the end marker of the subway line that you're interested in exploring. This will open a list of galleries near each station on that route, including a brief description of each gallery, its address, and how to get there.

If you need some inspiration, head over to our blog to find out what exhibits we're currently excited about. The Boston Art Underground Blog is updated several times a week, so there's always something new to discover!
