Hometown Hero Spotlight: Glenn Williams


Each year Blue Hills Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Hometown Hero Calendar.


Glenn Williams


April 2018 Hometown Hero

Glenn Williams has spent the last twenty years hosting the cable television show “It’s All About the Arts” which highlights artists and artist groups in the Roslindale community. For Glenn, the “Arts” has a widespread focus across many genres including visual art, performing art, music and writing – if it’s creative, Glenn is “all about” it! Glenn is a teacher at the Sacred Heart School and co-founder of the Roslindale Arts Alliance, Roslindale Open Studios and Roslindale Porch Fest. Glenn’s support to local artists is unrivaled and provides an arts culture in Roslindale to be envied.

Each Hometown Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Glenn Williams is sending his $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Foundation to the Roslindale Arts Alliance.


Thank you, Glenn, for your longtime dedication to art and the artists in your community.
