Overview
More
Bower Center for the Arts is located at the corner of North Bridge Street and Bedford Avenue. The building itself has a rich and varied history. Though not apparent upon first glance, the Bower Center is actually comprised of two buildings, with the original structure having been built in 1847. The Center initially began as "Bedford Academy for the Arts" in 2006 and exists to promote the cultural arts in the Bedford area. Since 2006 Bower Center for the Arts has worked toward providing a cultural arts center in the heart of the Town of Bedford and continues to build upon that foundation to provide an atmosphere of learning and personal growth through entertainment and education in the Visual and Performing Arts.

A collection of community artisans and work spaces, very unique! Looks like they are the heartbeat of the community and do good work to train and inspire your artists. Part of the Artisan's Trail Network.
