Dudley Square :: A Community's Catalyst
August 26 - October 25, 2013
320 Newbury St, McCormick Gallery, 1st Floor

Dudley Square is the geographic center of Boston. It is a transportation hub and the gateway to a major metropolis. It is a unique place with rich history. But the true essence of Dudley Square is found within the vibrant Roxbury community that surrounds it.

In the middle of all of this is a new building, rising from the foundations of what once was a thriving commercial node. This is the story of how the promise of a building to enliven Dudley Square inspired those who shaped it-the city, the designers, and the community. The Dudley Square Municipal Office Facility signals a new era. This building is the community's catalyst.
