Emerson Urban Arts
Emerson Urban Arts was created as an innovative new way to bring transformative artistic experiences to the Emerson community as well as the surrounding downtown and greater Boston communities. Emerson Urban Arts produces public and performance art events, murals, projections, and installations created by Emerson students and faculty and the many other talented artists and artistic organizations with whom Emerson has developed partnerships.
The Emerson Urban Arts: Media Art Gallery, which opened in Fall 2016, serves as a new home of Emerson Urban Arts and is the program’s flagship gallery space for showcasing contemporary visual and media art exhibitions. Emerson Urban Arts also presents exhibitions at the College’s Huret & Spector Gallery in the Tufte Building at 10 Boylston Place and the Paramount Urban Screen at the Emerson/Paramount Center at 559 Washington Street. Along with these venues, Emerson Urban Arts produces major public arts events across the city of Boston throughout the year.
