The FPAC/WBUR Art Lending Program
The Fort Point Arts Community has a long-standing relationship with WBUR, Boston’s National Public Radio News Station. For twenty years now FPAC has had an art lending partnership with WBUR, in which FPAC artists loan artwork for exhibition in the WBUR Studio Offices. In turn, WBUR publicizes FPAC’s fall and spring Open Studios events on the air. Artwork loaned to WBUR is enjoyed by all who work in the WBUR Offices, as well as by the Station’s many distinguished guests and visitors from all walks of life.
