Each year Danforth Art’s Juried Exhibitions Off the Wall and Community of Artists showcase new and exciting contemporary work created by emerging and established artists. Juried annually by a renowned, visiting curator, Off the Wall communicates a unique curatorial vision, and has been reviewed in Art New England, artscope, The Boston Globe, Boston Phoenix, among others. It also receives wide-spread attention from curators, gallery owners, and collectors.
