Mission Statement

As a non-profit public art institution, HarborArts is dedicated to fostering cultural engagement through visual, literary, and performing arts. We embrace the unique challenge of transforming Boston's historic, working shipyard into a meaningful space for creativity, discovery, inspiration, and education within East Boston's economically and ethnically diverse community. HarborArts is a platform for dialogue, setting the stage for global impact through accessible collaboration and environmental stewardship.

Description

HarborArts, Inc. is a collaborative community whose sole purpose is to protect and preserve our oceans and waterways by helping each of us to understand the issues and solutions facing our blue planet. HarborArts uses monumental sculpture and public art to raise awareness of our mission.

Our effort is global but our story begins here in the Boston Harbor with one man and a big fish; a forty-foot Cod.

Steve Israel, founder of HA, is a man who is passionate about our ocean planet and believes firmly that through art, you can raise public awareness. Combine this with a background as an artisan with an extensive knowledge of the salvage industry as well as organic farming and you know that the result will be interesting.

HarborArts opened our first international outdoor gallery on the grounds of the Boston Harbor Shipyard in 2010. Works from over 30 artists representing 3 continents, many of which are made from natural & salvaged materials, are on loan from the artists for at least a year. New installations will be made seasonally. For more information on the Outdoor Gallery and what's new at HarborArts check the News page.
