Best of Boston

2001 Best Art Gallery

Barbara Krakow

Known far and wide as Boston’s “mini MoMA,” the Krakow is Ground Zero for emerging contemporary art. The gallery’s owners consistently go out of their way to dig up new artists, adding a strong dose of local talent to the mix, and rounding it out with international masters. Look for as much photography (documentaries from Nicholas Nixon, for example) as painting and sculpture (a recent series of Cameron Shaw’s work blew us away).
