For the 10th anniversary of fast-growing Boston startup ezCater, AFH designed a large scale (30" x 80") painting depicting the ezCater success story. We were honored to celebrate this local business as an emblem of entrepreneurship — one of Artists For Humanity’s core pillars.​

AFH offers a refreshing range of unique services that bring our creativity directly to events, meetings, conferences, and social gatherings. Tailored to meet clients' objectives, our teen artists and professional mentors work "live" onsite to create conversation, collaborative moments, and social media worthy art, often directly with guests. See our latest Interactive activations, below.​

This fall, Artists For Humanity created an interactive mural and limited-edition t-shirts for a unique free concert at Franklin Park. The musical event was preceded by a community arts festival with family-friendly activities presented by many of Boston's major institutions and local arts organizations.


Marking the first time the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops have performed on the same stage in a free outdoor public venue, the event was attended by 7,000 people. Our favorite moment? When orchestra conductors took the stage wearing AFH-designed t-shirts!


AFH participated in a Seaport "Block Party" celebrating the opening of Equinox's new Seaport Boulevard location. With demonstrations, yoga and stretch classes in full swing, we joined the fitness party by inviting the event’s attendees to make their mark on 16 individual canvases. The completed canvases later came together to form a mashup of Equinox’s logo combined with Boston Harbor iconography. Many thanks to AFH teens Ali and Genna, and painting mentor Ari, who led the interactive.​

Hubspot Wall Talk​

As part of Hubspot's ever-popular Inbound Conference, Artists For Humanity illustrated the District Hall walls with sponsor logos and innovation icons reflecting the conference themes. Co-founder Jason Talbot and Marketing Director Rich Frank attended a number of talks at the conference, learning about the latest marketing innovations. At the conference, Rich and Events Director Alexis Orellana had the privilege of seeing Former First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama speak. Thank you for having us, Hubspot! ​

vertex family day

To celebrate Vertex Family Day, AFH created two large-scale paintings depicting the Vertex community labs, where high school students gain STEM experiences under the tutelage of Vertex staff. AFH teens worked with Vertex employees and their families to complete these engaging pieces which will be displayed at Vertex's Seaport headquarters.​
