Arts on the Point

The UMass Boston sculpture park “Arts on the Point” consists of large-scale outdoor works by some of the world's leading artists.   This important educational program exposes students to large-scale projects contextualized by the campus and the bay. Arts on the Point is an on-going initiative that involves students in the inner workings of curatorial practices, fund-raising events, and hires them as docents who guide visitors through the collection. In recent years, the program has sponsored lectures by artists aimed at Art majors and has provided contacts for students within the Boston arts community.
