Boston Center for the Arts

Boston Center for the Arts, An Urban Cultural Village

Boston Center for the Arts Occupying an entire city block in Boston’s historic South End, the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is a dynamic citywide arts destination that incubates and showcases emerging artists and art of our times.

Located along Tremont Street, the four-acre BCA complex includes 50 working artist studios, 6 live/work spaces, The Mills gallery, three small theaters, educational and rehearsal spaces, The Cyclorama, and the BCA offices. It is also proud to be the home for the Boston Ballet, Community Music Center of Boston, and Hamersley’s Bistro.

The BCA is also the creative home for two new theatres in The Theatre Pavilion at Boston Center for the Arts, which houses the Virginia Wimberly Theatre and the Edward and Nancy Roberts Studio Theatre, in partnership with the Huntington Theatre Company. This expansion enhances the BCA as the Hub’s “Off Broadway” and citywide arts destination, doubling its current 100,000 visitors annually.

The unique facilities, working artists, and diverse publics of the BCA come together to create an urban cultural village – a welcoming environment and inviting gathering place that utilizes the arts to break down barriers between people and to encourage dialogue and exchange.
