Now. There. Let's make some art!
Now and There is bringing together unique artists with unique spaces to create thought-provoking public art in Greater Boston. We're building on our 30-year history as UrbanArts to create temporary and site specific projects for, and with, the community. We're glad you're here!

This first post in a four-part series entitled Art in Service, a collaboration between N+T and Big, Red & Shiny, explores the definitions, challenges and modes of exchange in socially engaged art practices.
We serve up art that fosters questions and enlivens our communities. Our goal is to be a voice in the conversation about Boston's identity. Who are we as Bostonians? What do we value? And how is all that represented in our public art?
We put our artists' visions first. We search out artists whose values matches our own and those of our community. We then help them make the best public art they can. And along the way we hope to help advance new definitions of public art.
