The Next Step-"Brick Campaign"

Step One - The Firehouse

The New Firehouse Building


Be a part of North River Arts Society's future.


It’s happening!  The first step in the North River Arts Society’s multi-phase Revitalization project is almost complete.  The new gallery/studio and education space, is now being used year-round.  NRAS is enhancing its programming for youth and providing a significant state-of-the art year-round cultural resource for the community it serves. NRAS is now working on Fixtures, Furnishings and Exterior Landscaping. The people responsible for the Phase I construction are: Project Manager -- Carmine Bruno, Project Architect -- Chris DeOrsay of Campbell/Smith.

All of our support is community-based, with donations from many generous donors throughout the South Shore and the wonderful events organized by NRAS’s many volunteers.
