Melrose Arts (formerly known as Melrose Arts and Cultural Association) unites artists, arts organizations, patrons and other enthusiasts of culture to encourage, present and sustain artistic and cultural activities in Melrose, Massachusetts for the benefit of its citizens.
Melrose Arts will seek to help identify the needs of the artistic and cultural community and help resolve those needs. Among its chief responsitibities will be to organize the annual Arts Festival at Memorial Hall. As Melrose Arts grows in membership, influence and financial strength, additional responsibilities may include the finding and funding of rehearsal space within the city free of cost, or at subsidized price.
A significant portion of the efforts of Melrose Arts is to establish on our website, melrosearts.com, individual galleries to showcase the work of Melrose artists. Each artist is given the opportunity to provide biographical and contact information, listings of upcoming showings and accomplishments, and display images of their works on the website.
Melrose Arts is a non-profit community arts group that maintains it's 501(c)3 status by being in partnership with the Melrose Community Coalition.
