Boston was called the Athens of America in the 1800s and it's a reputation still upheld and nurtured by its arts community, including numerous renowned commercial art galleries. Boston’s most notable art galleries are found in inviting neighborhoods like the Back Bay and the South End, where the SoWa (south of Washington) Art + Design District lures countless art lovers. But art galleries have also spread throughout the city, and to less central neighborhoods, too. You might discover the next great master right on your doorstep.
