Hudson Guild, a community center in Chelsea which opened in 1895, provides a wide
range of services to people of all ages. The Guild’s Arts programs have proven successful
in helping to build a stronger community by bringing together people from diverse
backgrounds to explore their mutual interest in the arts.
Hudson Guild Gallery, which opened in 1948, offers different ways for participants to
explore the visual arts, especially viewers from underserved populations—including those
living in the public housing developments in which the Guild is located, as well as people
who participate in the Guild’s mental health, youth and senior programs. Exhibits of work
by professionally trained artists expose viewers to an eclectic range of styles, forms and
themes. Guided tours throughout the year serve to educate viewers of all ages about
contemporary visual art, fostering dialogue about the variety of ways in which artists
express their ideas. Over 2000 people visit the Guild’s two gallery spaces every year.
