Focus on Brook Farm VII – October 2021 through January 2022

Brook Farm in West Roxbury has long inspired writers, photographers, artist, artisans, and musicians. New Brook Farm (a recent recipient of Community Preservation Act Funding from the City of Boston) invites you to safely visit the Brook Farm Historic Site and continue the tradition by submitting your photos, artistic representations, prose, poetry, and musical works inspired by this historic place to our sixth annual Focus on Brook Farm event.

Visit – Brook Farm Historic Site is located at 670 Baker Street, West Roxbury 02132, which is on Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) land. You are free to visit on your own, following DCR rules, or during a New Brook Farm sponsored walk/tour on Saturday October 16, 2021 (see above).

New Brook Farm will select works that reflect the many faces of the site for an anticipated public on-line exhibition in Spring 2022.
