Tufts University


Located since 1991 in the Shirley and Alex Aidekman Arts Center on the main Tufts campus in Medford, the Tufts University Art Gallery is a recognized player in the active contemporary art scene in the Boston metropolitan area and an unparalleled campus resource for fostering visual literacy and critical thinking skills. The Gallery's mission is to animate the intellectual life of the greater university community through exhibitions and programs that explore new, global perspectives on art and art discourse. During the first decade of the 21st century, the Tufts University Art Gallery has become a producer of thematic exhibitions of socially engaged art that expose students to a global outlook on current art production and supplement the critical discourse of the classroom. It is also the premier visual art showcase in our host communities of Medford and Somerville and has served artists living or working in these communities in a variety of ways during the summer months.
