ABOUT ART FOR THE SOUL GALLERY
Art for the Soul Gallery was established to provide a venue where artists of all cultures can exhibit and sell their work. Based in downtown Springfield, the space was created to represent and promote the work of emerging local artists that reflect the diverse cultures of the global society. Art for the Soul Gallery’s educational mission is to provide cultural enrichment to the community by providing a rigorous curriculum, integrating both historical perspectives and the emerging social/political issues that define our times; cultivating a safe public space for personal and collective inquiry through workshops for adults, children and artists. The gallery will host lectures, readings and exhibits in conjunction with the non-for-profit groups whose mission reflects the mission and educational objectives of the gallery. Art for the Soul is in the former Baystate West Mall, now called Tower Square.
