HOPKINTON CENTER FOR THE ART...

Our Mission

The Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) entity whose mission is to provide an environment where individuals of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to create and present quality visual and performing arts. This broad-based aim to offer “something for everyone” is what makes HCA unique. Our vision is for a place where creativity flows and cultural opportunities abound.

Several decades ago five artists envisioned a local fine arts center in the Hopkinton area. In 1997, the Cultural Arts Alliance (CAA) was established, utilizing the farmhouse building at 98 Hayden Rowe Street for art exhibits, classes and events. The long term goal was to restore the barn on the property to create more classrooms and a performance/community/lecture space. Phase One of the project, which included stabilizing the barn, creating a new foundation, and configuring an outdoor amphitheater (funded largely from town Community Preservation Act funds), was successfully completed. (See Phases of Development for a more detailed description of Phase One.) Further work stalled, however, due to lack of manpower to continue the fundraising and planning efforts.

In 2010, Hopkinton’s Enter Stage Left Theater (ESL) had a growing number of volunteers and participants, and needed a larger space for its needs. The board members and staff of CAA and ESL formed a partnership, creating the Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA). Kelly Grill, Executive Director of ESL, and Kris Waldman, former executive director of the CAA, are now Executive and Artistic Directors, respectively, of the HCA. ESL is now the resident theater company of the HCA.

The Hopkinton Community Endowment (HCE) then joined the partnership, bringing considerable experience in fundraising and a larger community presence to increase broader awareness and interest in the project. The HCA officially became a 501(c)(3) entity in 2011, with Board members from each of the three partner organizations.
