Our Art Gallery: a creative hub for the community

We believe in the power of architecture to not only shape cities but also to foster creativity and community engagement. We are thrilled to announce our opening of our art gallery, a unique space situated in our lobby, dedicated to showcasing local talent and hosting a variety of community events.

Nestled within our architect agency’s modern and innovative lobby space, the Small Art Gallery represents our commitment to supporting the arts and providing a platform for emerging artists in the Boston area. This versatile and intimate venue has been thoughtfully designed to host art exhibitions and other events that promote artistic expression and collaboration.

we take immense pride in celebrating the rich artistic diversity of our community. With a rotating lineup of exhibits, we offer local artists an opportunity to display their work to a wider audience, connecting them with art enthusiasts, collectors, and potential collaborators. From contemporary paintings and sculptures to photography and mixed media, our art gallery is a dynamic space that constantly evolves with each new exhibition.

+ SKIN&BONES Photography Exhibition
We partnered with local artist and multimedia wiz Rafael Shabazz to bring a Photography and spoken word poetry event to the community of Roxbury. The visual works depicted the neighborhood and people that made him who his today. The spoken word was performed by a number of Boston based poets and  musicians. The poetry topics ranged from feminism, anti-colonization, spiritual, Boston life and much more. We saw a great turnout and incredible community support and plan on hosting more events like this in the future.

  + Supporting Iranian Women
At Urbanica, we find it important to support marginalized groups however way we can. Thats why we’ve made an effort to platform and promote female Iranian artists in multiple exhibitions. These artists are often unable to sell their work in their home country due to political reasons, so giving them a space to showcase their talents is invaluable  otherwise they go unseen. We’ll continue to support these freedom fighters as we go forward building the Boston creative community.

+ AFH Fellow Naijah Nine 
After a long hiatus, we partnered with Artist for Humanity fellow Naijah Nine, a visual artist focused depicted the struggles of the BIPOC community as well as her own gender identity. The Exhibition featured a variety of works ranging from paintings on wood planks to graphic design. This show marked the start of a new wave of collabortations focused on uplifting local artists.
