Beyond Benign

Art & Science Program

CE Art & Science Program

We believe that silos are often best broken. By engaging the community and youth through art, we can break down walls and pre-conceptions. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) are all subjects which involve creativity and innovation. Our Art & Science program engages greater Boston regional artists and youth through in-house art exhibitions involving both professional and student artists – and, also brings science subjects to the classroom through interactive art activities.

Our unique gallery space is shared with our partner organization, the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry. We hold art receptions and open houses to view our rotating art exhibits on a regular basis.

CONTACT US if you are interested in working with us on an in-house exhibit or a STEAM project.

We collaborate regularly with Jerry Beck and the Revolving Museum. Jerry is well known in the greater Boston area as an innovative force within the art community. He strongly believes that art can be a mechanism for social, economic and environmental transformation within a community and for bringing diverse populations together around common goals.
