Centerboard is pleased to announce the 4th installment of our public art display on the MBTA bridge in Central Square in downtown Lynn. "Public Art 4.0, the Ghosts of Lynn" is a first time collaboration between Visionspace Gallery (owned and operated by us!), the Downtown Lynn Cultural District, the Lynn Museum & Cultural Society and Raw Art Works!
Students in RAW's Real to Reel Filmschool have unearthed cool old photos of Lynn, thanks to the nice folks at the Museum. They will then find the exact same vantage point, snap a photo and work their technological magic to create a synthesis of Lynn's then and now! Pretty exciting stuff! We are doing some fundraising to help off-set the productions costs. By donating, you can help these young artists strut their art stuff! Visit our info/donate page here, learn more about the project and support local arts today!
Centerboard Arts strives to bring the community together by offering unique arts and culture opportunities for children and adults alike. We aim to make our HQ a hub of activity through our art shows, music classes, recording studio and artist-in-residence programs. Come on down and see for yourself!
Centerboard Volunteers has a host of opportunities for those interested in giving back to the community. Whether its teaching ESOL classes, knitting blankets, being a Budget Coach, sorting and organizing books, or gallery sitting, we welcome you to join us!
Centerboard Education focuses on improving literacy among Lynn school age children. Having students reach their appropriate reading level by grade three is crucial. We contribute to this mission by giving away hundreds of free books per week via our Big Red Bookshelf program and community outreach to churches, childcare centers and youth organizations.
Centerboard Family Services keys on bringing families and children in flux into stable situations. Whether it’s getting families out of shelter and into permanent housing or assisting parents and children who are having trouble at home, our Families program is committed to helping, educating and empowering our clients so that they can take the next step forward into productive and successful lives.
