The Kimball-Jenkins Estate was donated to the city of Concord with directions that it be used for cultural and educational purposes, including the “encouragement of art."
It is from this gift of the Estate that the highly acclaimed School of Art at Kimball-Jenkins was born. The School of Art serves the visual arts education needs of more than 1,300 students every year. Several buildings on the estate have been refitted to provide space for art studios and classrooms for drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, woodworking, glass and sculpture.
The Mansion and the one-time carriage house provide the main galleries where visitors will find an on-going series of exhibits of works from regional and national artists.
