Twice each year the artists of Fort Point open their studios to the public. Join us for a weekend of art!
Explore the historic waterfront warehouses that are home to painters, sculptors, ceramicists, jewelers, performance artists, printmakers, book artists, photographers, and more. Meet local artists and craftspeople, and get a behind the scenes look at where Boston artists create their work. Find established artists, and discover new emerging talents. Stroll, ponder, and browse. Buy original art from the people who make it.
Visitors to Open Studios can tour artists’ studios in 14 buildings in the Fort Point neighborhood, as well as galleries and pop-up exhibit venues. All buildings are in easy walking distance of each other. Free participatory art-making activities for all ages will take place on Saturday and Sunday. Performance and special events are also part of this year’s Open Studios.
NEW! Electric Pilgrims
October 17, 2015 RSVP
Emerson College’s Urban Arts Program of the School of the Arts presents Electric Pilgrims—an immersive projection event. The one-night event is planned in conjunction with Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC) and the 36th Annual Fort Point Open Studios. The event is free; no reservations are required. (Rain date: Sunday, October 18). Electric Pilgrims will include a variety of video projections that will illuminate Channel Center Street, featuring sound, live light projections, an interactive television wall, and video and slide projections on screens and across the buildings in a spectacular installation. The centerpiece of the multimedia experience will be a main screen that will showcase four video projections by Emerson College filmmakers, alumni, and colleagues.
