What is an Art Hive?

An Art Hive is a creative community studio supervised by an art therapist and a museum facilitator where art materials are provided free of charge. It also makes various tools and recycled materials available, enabling you to express yourself freely through art.

Uniquely museum-based

The MMFA’s Art Hive is the only one established in a museum. It’s part of the International Art Hives Network (, a community organization whose influence extends throughout the world.

Our thanks for this creative space go to the Rossy Family Foundation, whose financial support made the Art Hive possible at the MMFA.
