Beyond our Walls

Our Mission Statement: The Danforth Art Museum and Art School at Framingham State University is an innovative cultural resource serving the region by enriching our community with opportunities for transformational art experiences. We exhibit, collect and teach through dynamic and responsive programming. With a welcoming environment in our studios and galleries, the Danforth inspires and engages through art.

When you visit the Danforth Art Museum you see some of the best contemporary art in New England curated by Jessica Roscio and Rachel Passannante.




We don’t want to stop at the Museum walls. Our hope is to connect with artists in the community and provide additional exhibit space for the arts. This desire has led us to launch Beyond Our Walls — a virtual gallery to highlight and involve more artists from Framingham and the surrounding communities. We believe this a way to broaden the opportunities to inspire and engage through art.

Artist and Danforth Community Engagement Coordinator Mary Erickson will serve as a roving reporter by bringing you some of the art out in the world that speaks to her. Think of her as the curator of Beyond Our Walls. Please let Mary know if you have something you want to see on these pages.
