Welcome to the Menino Arts Center (MAC) in Hyde Park, MA. The MAC is run by the Hyde Park Art Association (HPAA), a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Due to the success and longevity (1988) of HPAA the city of Boston gifted the organization with a permanent home at 26 Central Avenue in Hyde Park. We are on the 2nd floor of the George Robert White Building in Logan Square.  We are literally the “center in the square”.

The Menino Arts Center serves the neighborhood of Hyde Park, greater Boston and its suburban counterparts. With over 4,000 square feet of space, the MAC is home to a large classroom, seven affordable artist work studios, three galleries, a library and resource center, an auditorium and our organization’s home offices.

There’s something here for everyone, at any age. 12 months a year we present art, music, workshops, demonstrations, lectures and special events, at our facility and off site.

Membership gives you discounts for workshops as well as other benefits, choose the level that’s best for you.

Our Mission:  The mission of the Hyde Park Art Association is to support local artists, make cultural opportunities accessible to families, students, and seniors who may not otherwise have the means to participate; enrich community life, serve as a unifying force in the neighborhood; and help create a more vibrant commercial district.
