Beacon Street Art Gallery
By Morgan Stabile
The Brookline Art Center is hosting PRISM at the Beacon Street Gallery located at 1351 Beacon Street in Brookline. The exhibition features work from over 20 artists residing or working in Brookline.
According to the Brookline Arts Centers website, the inspiration for the collection was the intricately linked relationship between color and the creation of art. The works selected for this exhibition use “bold, vibrant, and distinctive treatments of color to communicate artistic visions.”
The Beacon Street Gallery space was donated to the Brookline Art Center by Sanctuary. Sanctuary CEO Jason Sidman said in a statement to Patch, “Through the Beacon Street Gallery we can use this location as a public benefit.” This collaboration is one of Sanctuary’s many initiatives to be part of and give back to the neighborhood.”

Before Hosting PRISM, the gallery housed the world’s Largest Puzzle! The 40,320 piece Ravensburger puzzle was assembled by 10 teams consisting of 2-4 people. This project was organized by David Leschinsky, owner of Eureka! Puzzles & Games, Sanctuary’s many Beacon Street neighbors. For more on the puzzle project click here.
The Beacon Street Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The entrance to the gallery is separate from the entrance to Sanctuary’s sales floor. Admission is free and there is a sanitation station located at the entrance.
Prism will be running until November 13, 2020.
