Thought-Provokers: Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End

Boston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Back Bay, Beacon Hill & South End that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

After graduating college I used some extra cash to buy a Canon T4i DSLR and started taking photos for fun.
