The Mother Brook Arts and Community Center, which opened last summer, will be the recipient of hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant money. State Representative Paul McMurtry and state Senator Michael Rush, members of the town’s delegation on Beacon Hill, helped secure $200,000 in state funding for the nonprofit facility, according to a recent posting on the center’s Facebook page. In addition, the center at 123 High St. is also getting a Massachusetts Cultural Council matching grant of $210,000, of which $145,000 has already been raised, the posting said. The Mother Brook center, which is home to dozens of artists, opened a new exhibition this weekend titled “Out of the Everywhere: Evolution of the Graffiti Artist.” The show will be on display through Oct. 18.
