I especially liked some special exhibits on black art that were there recently but their other exhibits are good and often changing and you can get a library pass to visit for free.
It's silly that it took my family and I over 14 years to visit the Danforth Museum of Art. I knew they offered art classes but, I was not aware of the wide range of art forms that were represented. I especially loved the children's wing with art from books or about children's subjects. The atmosphere is calm and tranquil... More
The Danforth Museum has grown a lot over the years. Under its current director, Kathrine French, the museum has had a number of wonderful exhibits and I find it to be a museum well worth the visit.

Off the Wall, A Community of Artists, and Picture This can be seen for one more week. The first two show a great variety of work from local artists. This museum will be moving to a larger building in Framingham, and hopefully will be equipped with air conditioning.
and found myself lost in wonder. Modern art and private collections, this is a small and unique find, perfect for meditation and just getting a different perspective. Rare and eclectic.
Danforth is becoming the museum to visit for a look at contemporary New England art (a really comprehensive and well-chosen invitational each year) and a strong collection of the Boston Expressionists.

It has been several years since I went to the Danforth. As I recall, it was a surprisingly lovely museum...surprising because it is nestled in downtown Framingham, a place I would not have expected such a nice art museum. I highly recommend a visit!
The outside is nothing to look at, but the guts of the museum are busting. This is not a museum you will spend an entire day in, but they have a good variety of ever changing works. I've taken several classes at the museum and find the staff very knowledgable and very helpful.
The Danforth doesn't make a good first impression - the brick building could easily pass for an old apartment complex - but the small exhibit space inside is used well. There's always something interesting to see. They also offer very good classes.
