The PRC moves to Cambridge!  Now a resident partner with Lesley University’s College of Art and Design

The PRC is excited to announce that we are now resident partners with Lesley University's College of Art and Design! As we last wrote, Boston University generously hosted the PRC on its campus since 1979 and, this past winter, the University informed the PRC that they intended to renovate and re-purpose our building, where we had been since 2003. From Commonwealth Avenue, Boston to Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge -- our move mirrors LUCAD's move from Kenmore Square to Porter Square --  and now it's the beginning of a new era, just across the river!

We are grateful to Lesley University College of Art and Design (LUCAD) for this opportunity and look forward to growing our relationship with the school and its students, faculty, and staff.  As an independent non-profit, we'll continue to serve Greater Boston and New England, its many institutions, photographers, and photo fans. Our new office space will be in the Lunder Arts Center, LUCAD's brand new art and design facility, located on the MBTA's Red Line. We are working on a new website and e-newsletter system, so please pardon out electronic dust in the meantime!

The PRC Print Program continues

There are close to 30 artists available in our limited edition, affordable benefit Print Program and the available slate can be seen here. Prints can be viewed with an appointment, just send us an email with what you'd like to see. Several editions recently sold out and many have 3 or fewer prints remaining. All proceeds benefit the PRC and its programs. EXPLORE the PRC's Print Program here >>>


The PRC is currently all-volunteer. As we work on rebuilding, we continue to provide excellent shows and programs. Join and support us by attending various events, renewing your membership, and consider making a donation! If you have interest in photography and community, contact us at and join our group on Facebook.
