Thought-Provokers: Brookline, Brighton, Allston

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.

Art has always been at the back of my mind as I focused in school and other parts of my life, and it wasn’t until 2014 that I fully rediscovered my creativity and passion in the subject. My mother had just retired and we decided to take an art class together. Read more>>

Emily Mentes

I can’t really pinpoint when it was that I realized my love for photography, but I do have some random memories of picking up my family’s old point and shoot camera and just going for walks, taking photos along the way. Read more>>

Carey Lin

Being too careful and safe does not help me move forward in my career, especially a creative one like the one I’m developing. I am lucky enough to have the means and the time to put into my work and craft, be it in dance, theatre, or film. Read more>>
