BROCKTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Milton Art Museum moved to downtown Brockton and will showcase original pieces by some of the greatest artists in history; Renoir, Manet, Whistler, Picasso and others.
Milton Art Museum has re-established itself at 50 Centre St.
Established in 1986, the museum was founded by Brockton resident William Beyer, at the Cunningham Elementary School in Milton.
For about 17 years, the museum called the Massasoit Community College campus in Canton home until it was placed in storage in 2019.
At the beginning of 2020, MassDevelopment announced a $25,000 grant to get the museum out of storage and to its new location.
"This project team, led by Brockton Arts, will use grant funds to provide the Milton Art Museum with a new home and financial stability as it re-establishes itself and develops its own self-sustaining income streams," MassDevelopment Kelsey Schiller stated.
Brockton Arts President Arnie Danielson and Chair of the museum's Board of Trustees Ellyn Moller told WBZ NewsRadio's Madison Rogers they are excited to add more programs when COVID-19 restrictions ease up.
Hours for the museum as of now are Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. and by appointment. Details are on the museum's Facebook page.
Art classes are taught in the art gallery every Sunday from 3 to 6.p.m.
