Fort Point Arts Community
Fort Point is home to over 300 artists who produce work in a wide array of media. It is recognized as one of New England’s largest artists’ communities. The historic warehouse buildings of Fort Point house painters, photographers, sculptors, designers, ceramicists, performance artists, jewelers, book artists, digital media artists, and more.
Who we are: The Fort Point Arts Community, Inc. of South Boston (FPAC) is a non‐profit community organization founded in 1980 and run by neighborhood artists and volunteers. Our mission is to promote the work of our artists to a broad and diverse audience; to preserve the artists community in the Fort Point Channel area; to insure the continuance of permanent, affordable studio space; to build community; and to increase the visibility of the arts in Fort Point.
What we do: In 1980, shortly after artists began to arrive in 1976, Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC) was established as a 501(c)(3) member organization. FPAC has fulfilled this mission for more than 30 years through a variety of initiatives that have served its members, the City of Boston and the New England region
