General Information

Danforth Art is a Museum and School that invites you to see, learn about, create, and be inspired by art. In May, 2016, we received notice from the Town of Framingham that we must vacate the Danforth Building at 123 Union Avenue by the fall of 2016. We appreciate your patience during this transition and invite you to learn more here.

*Please Note: We anticipate occasional disruptions to business operations during the upcoming relocation, and apologize for any delays in communications. We encourage you to contact any staff member at Info (at) danforthart.org as this email address will be monitored at all times.
