In the form of Cheap Art, this project celebrates the oft-unheralded field of Community Art in Boston, and the essential and inspirational leadership role of women in the field.
The ten women honored in this set of trading cards are putting their remarkable and diverse creative talents to the profound task of meeting our city’s most pressing social and emotional needs. An eleventh card commemorates Boston Community Arts legend, Elma Lewis.
The printed trading cards format is a nostalgic, novel, and affordable way to hold and share this meaningful content. Complete trading card sets are available for $5 at Dorchester Art Project’s Frugal Art Collective Gallery, 1486 Dorchester Avenue in Fields Corner. Proceeds go to support the work of the artists.
