The Bellforge Arts Center, a legacy of the past, a vision of the present, an omen for the future: “If You Build It, They Will Come.”
The Cultural Alliance of Medfield (CAM) embarked on a challenging and exciting journey, using the arts as the main vehicle for this ambitious project. The results will change the landscapes of the entire Medfield community, the MetroWest Area, and beyond. Furthermore, it will serve as a national model for community building and economic prosperity efforts.
Studies show that when real estate developers and art leaders ally, understanding the principles of community engagement and revitalization through the arts, there is usually a happy ending. When artists are included with urban planners, city councils and policymakers, and have a place at the table from the start of any community improvement project, it is an excellent recipe for success. This is all happening in Medfield, Massachusetts, and plans to build The Bellforge Arts Center are underway.
