About Pao Arts Center

Through arts, culture, and education, the Pao Arts Center brings together community members across generations to reclaim a critical piece of Chinatown history and to create healthy families and vibrant communities. In partnership with Bunker Hill Community College, Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center opened the Pao Arts Center in 2017 to be Chinatown’s first community-based arts center and Boston’s newly dedicated Asian American and Asian immigrant cultural space. The Pao Arts Center sits on a historically significant piece of land, Parcel 24, where hundreds of Chinatown residents were displaced in the 1960s in order to build a highway on ramp. The reclamation of this land as a place to celebrate and explore Asian culture represents a powerful shift towards community oriented development in the face of rapid change.


The Pao Arts Center is located in the One Greenway building on 99 Albany Street (entrance facing highway on-ramp).

For GPS driving directions, use 66 Hudson Street, Boston, MA 02111. From Hudson Street, walk up the stairs and across the deck to the 99 Albany Street entrance. The public parking garage entrance is on Hudson Street.

The Pao Arts Center is accessible by the MBTA green (Boylston), red (South Station), and orange (Tufts Medical Center/Chinatown) lines.
