Collection Historical Note

UrbanArts, Inc. is a not-for-profit public arts agency in Boston, Massachusetts. Founded in 1980 by Pamela Worden, the UrbanArts mission has been based on the belief that the cultural vitality of communities depends on incorporating the arts in the public realm, by engaging artists and citizens. The alliance in 1999 of UrbanArts with the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, provides a unique and revitalized platform from which to promote this ideal. It has been widely recognized for its important contribution to the revitalization of urban America. Award citations from the American Institute of Architects, the US Department of Transportation, the President's Commission of the Arts and Humanities, the Boston Society of Architects, and the City of Boston have recognized the high quality of art produced as well as the unique way in which UrbanArts engages communities in the design process, encouraging citizens to become full players in planning for the future of their communities.

UrbanArts has designed and managed projects for the City of Boston, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, the Massachusetts Highway Department, the Massachusetts Port Authority, and countless neighborhood organizations. In addition, UrbanArts maintains the largest and most diverse artists slide registry in the region. Notable projects undertaken by UrbanArts include "Arts in Transit," installing public art works in the Southwest Corridor of the Orange Line MBTA route, "YouthWorks/Art Works" programs, providing children and young adults in Boston with the opportunity to work with professional artists and experience art in new ways, and the Central Artery "Artery Arts" Project, installing public artworks into the highway infrastructure and the pedestrian environment.

In 1994 UrbanArts was the recipient of a Commonwealth Award, and in 1995 received an  Institute Honors award from the American Institute of  Architects, presented for “distinguished achievements that  benefit the environment and the architectural profession,”  noting in particular UrbanArts’s strong advocacy for citizen  participation in the city design process and its role as a liaison  between the public and those who make public policy.  UrbanArts led the artist selection for South Boston Maritime Park,  which won a National Honor Award from the American Society of  Landscape Architects in 2006. In 2007 Americans for the Arts  granted a Year in Review award for the Honan-Allston Library Bike Rack and Tree Guards project.

UrbanArts is supported in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency supporting the arts, humanities, and sciences.
