As the COVID-19 situation in Massachusetts develops, our number one concern at the Tufts University Art Galleries is the health and safety of our community. Following Tufts University policy, both art gallery locations in Medford/Somerville and Boston/SMFA are now closed to the public.

For updated information as to when we may re-open, please refer to the gallery’s website and official announcements from the University. While there is no replacement for seeing artwork in person, please download our TUAG iPad/iPhone app here for a virtual tour that includes images and gallery texts of our current exhibitions. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to stay in touch.

Welcome to the Tufts University Art Galleries, located in the Aidekman Arts Center on the university’s main Medford campus and at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts (SMFA at Tufts) in Boston. The Art Galleries engage with artists, scholars, and works of art to provoke conversation around today’s pressing cultural and social issues. Through exhibitions and programming focused on contemporary art, alongside broader research and collecting, we provide a pedagogical space for the Tufts community and wider publics.
