We are thrilled to present our fifth annual ART Off The Wall! This year, we are seeking donations from artists of all media residing in Massachusetts.


The BAC's Gallery Committee consisting of regional artists and art professionals will select all artwork to create a diverse collection. During the event, individuals who have purchased a Collector’s Ticket will have the opportunity to take home a piece from the collection. All selected artwork will be included in the exhibition (April 27-May 11 in conjunction with Brookline Open Studios), in an online gallery and in all digital and printed promotional materials.


Proceeds from this event directly support the BAC’s mission of bringing the community meaningful experiences in the arts. Thank you so much for your donation and commitment to the arts!
