Fivesparks is a dynamic community arts collaborative dedicated to cultivating artistic and cultural opportunities for a mult-generational community. The volunteer-run organization was established in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) and found a home in the Town of Harvard's historic Hapgood building. Originally housing the Harvard Public Library, the building has always been a center for community gathering, public education and expanding the boundaries of curiosity, expression and learning. Fivesparks' presence adds vibrancy to Harvard's town center and encourages community interaction by hosting art classes, educational programming, author speaking events, music programming, and a rotation of art exhibits in its gallery spaces.
