The Attleboro Arts Museum involves audiences of all ages and backgrounds in the visual arts through diverse educational programs and engaging arts experiences.
We work to support the creative and artistic development of both promising and professional artists.
The Museum is a privately supported, non-profit arts institution whose core commitment to Arts for Everyone guides the Museum's programs and operations.
You’ve got to Accentuate the positive, Eliminate the negative, Latch on to the affirmative. Don’t mess with Mister In-Between.”
“Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive”
Music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Johnny Mercer
I wasn’t born when Bing Crosby first popularized this song, but I thought the lyrics captured the essence of the Museum’s efforts to keep Arts For Everyone alive and well in our community despite the lingering pandemic.
Mim and her staff scrutinized every aspect of the Museum’s operations - classes, summer art weeks, exhibits, book club... always working to accentuate the safety and quality of each experience, while eliminating the health risks to those involved.
And we should all be pleased with the results:
• Art classes are back to full capacity.
• Exhibitions like Real or Imagined, 8 Visions and Honoring have filled the gallery with wonderful creativity.
• The Museum’s leadership on Cuddy Court Creatures by artist Jess Tracey and the colorful wrapped utility boxes from a team of local artists add wonder and excitement to Attleboro’s downtown.
• Auction Salons successfully replaced our traditional in-person Art Auction.
Please visit the Museum. We look forward to welcoming you into the gallery and we’re counting on your support. Your donations are an important part of our fundraising efforts. They provide a critical source of income. We appreciate donations of any level. Every gift makes a difference! Thank you.
With warm regards and appreciation,
