This week’s guest on BrooklineHub In-Depth is Brookline Arts Center’s executive director Jessica O’Hearn. Jessica took over BAC while the arts center and the rest of us were in the throes of the pandemic. She attended the Art Institute of Boston (now LUCAD) then started her career at Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico before moving on to the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, the University of Notre Dame, and finally the Juliet Art Museum before coming full circle back to the Boston area and BAC.

Brookline Arts Center (BAC) is a visual arts center committed to bringing the community meaningful experiences in the arts through classes, exhibitions, and outreach. BAC was founded in 1964 as a small parent cooperative for children’s art classes in the basement of Mim and Barney Berliner’s Brookline home. While its scope is much larger, today BAC’s mission is no different than when the Berliners started the center. BAC now hosts a faculty of working artists and high-quality visual arts classes.
