Danforth Art is a Museum and School that invites you to see, learn about, create, and be inspired by art. In the fall of 2016, we relocated to the Jonathan Maynard Building on Framingham Centre Common, where our new facility will house classrooms for studio art instruction, storage for the Museum’s Permanent Collection, and a workroom for its stewardship. We appreciate your patience during this transition and invite you to learn more here.
*Please Note: The second floor of the Jonathan Maynard Building will open for students enrolled in February adult workshops and February School Vacation Week workshops only. The third floor studios are scheduled to open for the Winter Session on February 27, 2017. Danforth Art’s administrative offices in the building are otherwise not open to unscheduled visitors. To schedule an appointment with a staff member, please email them or call 508-620-0050.
