ARTBOURNE, based here at Wellesley, is part of our thriving arts programme and is a popular biennial art exhibition of contemporary artworks,  from local and emerging artists, alternating between a multi-artist curated exhibition; and an Artist in Residence programme. With the latter programme welcoming an artist to hold a month long residency in our art room, where they create and further inspire our boys.


The sales commission from ARTBOURNE will support the innovative Arts and Scholarship programmes at Wellesley.

The Wellesley College Foundation is committed to providing access to young men who would not otherwise have access to a Wellesley education. We are grateful that all the ARTBOURNE artists and the resident artist donate 30% of the sale proceeds of their ARTBOURNE artwork sales to this scholarship programme. Further, funds raised from ARTBOURNE also support the development of the Visual Arts at Wellesley. For more information on this programme, or to donate please go to Promising Futures for Boys.
