About Off the Wall Juried Exhibition
Each year the Danforth’s Off the Wall Juried Exhibition showcases new and exciting contemporary work created by artists living and working in New England. Juried by renowned curators, the show communicates a unique curatorial vision, and has been reviewed in Art New England, artscope, Boston Globe, Boston Phoenix and in numerous on-line publications. It also receives wide-spread attention from curators and gallery owners, and is visited by a growing number of collectors who have the opportunity to purchase original work. This Years Juror:  Susan L. Stoops, currently Curator of Contemporary Art at the Worcester Art Museum, is a recognized authority on international art of the past decade.  In 2008 she received an award for curatorial excellence from the New England Chapter of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA) for her work on Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child.  Prior to joining WAM, Stoops served as Curator at the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.
