Peter Urban Retrospective Exhibit

From the Mayor’s proclamation:  “Peter’s dedication to this building, the Bates Arts Center ensured that these art studios will continue to provide artists of the present and future with affordable space that will allow them to develop and present their body of work, advancing their careers as artists, as he has done here for close to 20 years within these walls and in this South End community.  Through his consistent and cooperative relations with his neighboring artists, the City of Boston, the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the redeveloper, New Atlantic Development Corporation, Peter provided the leadership and stability to negotiate for the preservation of this landmark artist building, with affordable rents, in perpetuity.”

The Joshua Bates Arts Center artist tenants invites you to join them this Friday as a part of the South End Artwalk.  While you are here, you can also stop by the Artblock Revealed exhibit next door at Mobius.
