The Concord Art Association was founded in 1917 by Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts. It is located within the John Ball House, built in 1753 or 1761, and on a site that was built in 1657. The house was an overnight stop on the Underground Railroad.

Roberts purchased the John Ball House next to the town center in 1922 and hired architect Lois Howe to remodel the residential building into the Concord Art Centre. Galleries were positioned on the first floor and the upper floors became open exhibition space. A sky-light was installed to provide natural light for the gallery. The steel reinforced building was completed in 1923. The grand opening was held on May 6, 1923, with sixty painters and eighteen sculptors from Europe and the United States in attendance. Among the noted artists were Claude Monet, Robert Henri, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent. It has exhibited the works of Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Cecilia Beaux, Rockwell Kent, John Singer Sargent, Daniel Chester French, and Childe Hassam.

In 1924, Concord Art Association inaugurated the bronze Medal of Honor, with an eagle on one side and a pine cone on the other, for meritorious works of art.

Daniel Reilly was born in Providence, Rhode Island, to Francis and Mary Ann (née Bums) Reilly. He studied at Our Lady of Providence Seminary in Warwick (1943–1948) before studying at the Grand Seminary in Saint-Brieuc, France. Ordination and ministry

Reilly was ordained to the priesthood on May 30, 1953. He briefly served in a parish before completing his graduate studies at Boston College.

Serving the Diocese of Providence, he was successively named assistant chancellor (1954), secretary to Bishop Russell McVinney (1956), chancellor (1964), and vicar general (1972). He attended two sessions of the Second Vatican Council, and was raised to the rank of Monsignor in 1965. Bishop of Norwich, Connecticut

On June 5, 1975, Reilly was appointed the third Bishop of Norwich, Connecticut, by Pope Paul VI. He received his episcopal consecration on the following August 6 from Archbishop John Francis Whealon, with Bishops Vincent Joseph Hines and Louis Edward Gelineau serving as co-consecrators.

After nineteen years at Norwich, Reilly was appointed the fourth Bishop of Worcester, Massachusetts, on October 27, 1994.

In 2002 he became the first Catholic bishop to open the annual synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. In 2003 he expressed his unequivocal opposition same-sex marriage and civil unions, but declared he was open to discussion on giving public benefits to same-sex couples. Retirement
