The Art Connection, Inc. is a non-profit agency in Boston’s South End.
Since 1995, it has collected donations of art from Boston area artists and collectors and been the conduit for donating them to other non-profits and government agencies that cannot afford original art. Roxbury Community College has received 50 pieces of art through The Art Connection in 2005
and 2012. For more information, see http://www.theartconnection.org/
The Genevieve McMillan-Reba Stewart Foundation was formed to distribute thousands of works of art collected by Genevieve McMillan and created by Reba Stewart. Many hundreds of pieces have been donated to major art institutes around the country. RCC has been the recipient of ten art pieces in 2012.
