About Fay Chandler
In 1960, Fay Chandler was a 39-year-old mother of four who was unsure what to do with her life. She wanted to make a difference, but didn't know how. Through her passion and her strong stewardship to support art and community, she eventually used an inheritance to buy a long-decommissioned fire station in Brighton which she resurrected as artists' studios. From there, with friends, she developed the concept of an organization that would act as a broker between artists with art to give and social service organizations with walls to cover. This became The Art Connection. Fay particularly believed in helping young people: as such she supported a vast array of arts programs throughout eastern Massachusetts.
