MSH arts/cultural center financial analysis

Jean Mineo, Medfield’s arts and cultural guru, notes this morning my failure to include the Louise Stevens financial analysis of an arts/cultural center at the Medfield State Hospital site, when I posted a link to the DBVW Architects design concept report yesterday afternoon.  So here is the link to Louise Stevens’ financial analysis of an arts/cultural center at the Medfield State Hospital site from last October, that was updated this month –

I had intended to post it with the DBVW material, but ran short of time.  The DBVW report has the stunning visuals with a new glass connector between the Lee Chapel and the Infirmary, while the Louise Stevens analysis says that it can work financially.

My major take away from hearing Louise Stevens present and reading her report last fall was that the arts/cultural center can be financially self-sustaining, mainly by means of rental income as a wedding location.  However, the benefit to the town is having a robust arts/cultural center all the other days of the year.

These studies were spearheaded by Jean’s efforts, and were funded partly by monies voted at the annual town meeting a year ago and a state grant Jean secured for the town.
