Temporary and Site-specific

Now and There is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating impactful public art projects in Greater Boston. Our projects are temporary and site specific, hence our name.

Our Mission

Our mission is to deliver thought-provoking, public art projects that advance new definitions of public art, acculturate Boston to the cultural, social and economic benefits of art, and help define Boston's essential public art identity.


Our Values

Now and There strives to create engaging works of art and inspired spaces. Here are our core values:

  1. We put our artists' visions first when selecting a project.
  2. We are nimble of mind and action. 
  3. We are brave.  (We know not everyone will like the work we present.)



Now and There is led by Kate Gilbert a non-profit administrator, artist, and curator with support from a board of directors and advisors comprised of independent artists, curators, fabricators, funders and art world professionals.

Together we bring together curatorial vision, funding capacity and executional drive to make great public art happen (and all the good that comes from that).
