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.

Please note that event modalities are subject to change for the health and safety of our community. Guests will be required to follow Tufts University COVID guidelines that include showing proof of vaccination, wearing masks, and completing a brief COVID screening survey before arrival. Free parking in the Lower Campus Road lot is available for visitors without an active Tufts ID. Please see a gallery attendant to validate parking upon arrival.
