Art at deCordova
deCordova’s Museum features a dynamic program of rotating indoor exhibitions. Since opening in 1950, deCordova’s exhibition program has staked out a unique position devoted to contemporary art in New England and beyond. Thematic group, solo, and loan exhibitions, as well as those drawn from deCordova’s permanent collection of more than 3,500 artworks, celebrate the aesthetic and social power of the most pathbreaking art being made today.
As you may have recently seen, we shared a temporary suspension of the indoor galleries at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. The Sculpture Park remains open, and no other facilities, programs, events, or activities are affected, including the store or cafe. The temporary suspension allows us to upgrade our HVAC and climate control systems to ensure that our indoor exhibition spaces meet The Trustees’ and the museum industries’ stringent standards. We expect this process to take two-three years and we will share updates and ways to get involved in the coming months. For more information, please click here.
