MISSION STATEMENT*

BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH THE ARTS.  That’s what we’re all about!  The Amazing Things Arts Center is a membership based non-profit organization that is a local hub of energy and creativity and a gathering place that makes the arts available, affordable and accessible. We host live music five to six nights a week and produce four art galleries in different neighborhoods of Framingham, featuring Metrowest artists.  We also host comedy and theater throughout the year.

VISION STATEMENT

The Amazing Things Arts Center will be recognized as the arts hub in Framingham and a leader in promoting the arts throughout MetroWest.  It will continue its tradition of presenting the highest quality music in all genres, and its reputation for promoting new artists.  Amazing Things will be a destination for a variety of other performance arts including spoken word, theater and comedy.  It will continue its commitment to providing “open mic” and “jam” opportunities for community members from all performance levels to explore and develop their talents in a supportive venue.  Amazing Things will promote visual arts by featuring the works of MetroWest artists and supporting those artists by selling their work.  Amazing Things Arts Center will be a gathering place for community events.
