Firehouse Center for the Arts
Market Square, Newburyport
These are challenging times for all of us, and what’s most important is staying focused on keeping each other as safe as possible, both mentally and physically. It is with a heavy heart that we announce the suspension of operations at the Firehouse Center for the Arts until August 31, 2020. While the impact of this decision cuts deep, we take solace in knowing that we are playing a critical role in the response to reduce and stop the spread of the Coronavirus in our community and beyond. If you are looking to help, please visit the Phoenix Campaign page to donate.
