OPEN: Mass Art Made Boutique

MassArt Made is Massachusetts’ first college-affiliated retail boutique, offering art and design work exclusively crafted by alumni, students, faculty, and staff of Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Many of the nation’s top art & design schools have started to add these types of boutiques as a way to showcase the talent of its students; it’s become a growing trend. It’s exciting that Boston finally has one to call our own. Ten percent of the store’s gross income benefits MassArt scholarships. 
The store itself  boasts over 50 artists, all hand-picked by a jury to be included in the opening merchandise assortment with a diverse collection of unique, handmade products as well as commercially produced merchandise. Customers can scan QR codes to learn about artists over the store’s audio system as they shop the boutique.
Their mission is, "To put MassArt talent on display and sell objects that underscore the creative impact of MassArt in a variety of industries and to create stronger connections between the college, the students, the alumni, and the surrounding community."
Open: Mon-Sat 10-7pm/Sun 12-6pm
