Arts on the Point

Welcome to Arts on the Point

From monumental works to larger-than-life portraits to folk art, the University of Massachusetts Boston's Arts on the Point collection includes works by some of the most important sculptors of the 20th and 21st centuries. Sculptures are situated throughout the campus in dynamic relationship to their environment. Sculptures are on long-term loan to the university; private donors fund the initiative. The exhibition is open seven days a week, free of charge.

In addition to this guide, plaques at each sculpture present background and commentary.
