Open Air Museum

The Punto Urban Art Museum has two primary goals:

1 – To create a beautiful, uplifting environment for Point residents, particularly for children to grow up in.

2 –To break down the invisible divide between the Point Neighborhood and the rest of Salem by inviting visitors into the Point to experience world-class art first-hand.

By creating a walkable, curated open air museum within three neighborhood blocks, the district is readily accessible to all that downtown Salem already has to offer to over a million tourists per year.

Bringing a fraction of Salem’s visitors to the Point neighborhood stands to be a transformative economic development boom to immigrant-owned local businesses.
