Arts Wayland Foundation, Inc. (AW) formed itself as a non-profit educational organization in 1980 and applied for the use of the Loker School building. Wayland Town Meeting voted in favor of Arts Wayland renting about 75% of the entire space.
Arts Wayland used two of the classrooms for its teaching programs, the library became the gallery, the auditorium was “common space” but mainly used for drama, poetry, slideshows, musical events, etc. All of the rest of the building became artist studios (44 Tenants) and the kitchen became pottery studios.
Due to the increase in school population, Arts Wayland had to give up the space and was not able to continue the same wonderful programs. Arts Wayland donated the lighting equipment to the Wayland Library and agreed to help run the Raytheon Room shows. Even today, Arts Wayland continues to hold three to four exhibitions a year in the Raytheon Room.
Arts Wayland thanks all the board members, treasurers and presidents that over the years established and maintained Arts Wayland and its role in the our community.
Following are the previous presidents of Arts Wayland: Mimi Rogers, Marvin Feit, Jo Wilson, Charles Shane, John Seiler, Allen Barker, George Brawerman and Nasser K.
Arts Wayland Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
