One of America's most historic cities is also among the most progressive

A leading intellectual and cultural hub, Boston has long been associated with a certain ivy league character, yet, thanks to the constant influx of young blood to its numerous universities, it is a center for fresh ideas and cutting-edge arts. Although its charming old neighborhoods are impeccably preserved, this is a modern and increasingly style-conscious city, proudly displaying the results of decades of intensive urban regeneration.

Cutting-edge art platform Editors' Note

The Boston Center for the Arts, known for its fringe theatre companies, also houses the Mills Gallery, showcasing provocative and thought-provoking art by both emerging and established local and international artists.

Containing three spaces, the Mills Gallery can accommodate several individual shows, or expansive group shows, which are sometimes organised around a particular theme – climate change, for example. The gallery often provides a platform for experimental video and new media installations.
