The Art Connection

The Art Connection is a Boston based nonprofit with the mission of placing artwork, donated by local

artists and collectors, onto the walls of Greater Boston community service agencies. Since 1995 The

Art Connection has been helping organizations build their art collections, and create an accessible

“museum without borders” for their clients and staff. The donated art impacts these deserving

agencies by stimulating dialogue, creativity, learning and healing. The Art Connection gives access to

original art to people who otherwise don't have any art in their lives. I was on the board of directors

for eight years, and have donated over 150 older artworks over the years.
