Calendar of Events & Exhibitions

SMFA Art Sale

Public Days: Thursday, November 15 through
Saturday, November 17 (11 am – 7 pm)
Sunday, November 18 (11 am – 5 pm)

The SMFA at Tufts Art Sale features thousands of works from emerging and established artists. The Art Sale is your opportunity to discover the exceptional caliber of work produced by talented SMFA students, alumni, faculty, and affiliated artists, and to take home a masterpiece of your own. Each visit you make to the sale over the course of the week will be different because the selection is frequently rotated and refreshed as pieces are sold.

The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University splits the proceeds from each sale 50/50 with the artist, so each sale both supports artists and provides opportunities, financial aid, and other creative resources for art students at the school.


The Tufts University Art Galleries showcase emerging and established artists through cutting edge exhibitions and programs. Located in Medford and in Boston, the Galleries function as a meeting space for critical inquiry, artistic practice, and relevant discourse from across the art world. 


Tufts PUBLIC is a new temporary art program in and around open spaces throughout the university's Boston and Medford campuses.
