About Us

The Punto Urban Art Museum is a mission-driven social justice art program led by North Shore CDC, a community development non-profit founded in the neighborhood in 1978.

The Museum was created to break down the invisible, but undeniable socio-economic barrier between the Point Neighborhood and the rest of Salem and the North Shore.

Through stunning, world class art, we want children in the Point neighborhood to grow up with pride, and we want the rest of the community to have a reason to visit and discover the welcoming community that we know and love.
