North Shore Community College

Art Placements: 2009

About North Shore Community College
Established in 1965, North Shore Community College is one of the oldest and largest of the fifteen community colleges in Massachusetts. The population served by NSCC represents a mix of urban and suburban, a diversity of ethnic and racial groups, white and blue-collar, middle and low-income groups, as well as growing numbers of recent immigrants. North Shore Community College in Lynn aims to become a source of hope and opportunity blending tradition and innovation for its multi-ethnic student population. Because of economic limitations, many of their students have little opportunity to participate in cultural activities. The donated art will hang in their hallways, student lounges, support services, and cafeteria to encourage innovation and creativity while expanding students’ horizons.

Weston Council on Aging

Art Placements: 2009

About Weston Council on Aging (COA)
The Weston Council on Aging aims to advocate for and help meet the needs that are special to Weston’s senior citizens – for resources, for a sense of community, and for coping during vulnerable times. The COA seeks to enrich the quality of the lives of those sixty and older by offering helpful resources, presenting appropriate programs, and by enhancing a sense of community. The donated art will hang in the reception area, hallway, and classrooms to add a dimension of warmth and also create opportunities for conversations and connections. Many older residents of the community can easily become isolated, and the addition of art will transform this space where they meet to socialize and engage in community programs.
