More than 150 artists will open their studio doors to thousands of visitors as we celebrate 35 years of Open Studios in Fort Point.
Friday October 17th Preview: 4-7pm
Saturday & Sunday 10/18 &19: 12-6pm
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 more than 10 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 at multiple locations.
In conjunction with Open Studios, FPAC presents an expanded series of temporary public art installations throughout the neighbourhood. This year’s Public Art Series is anchored by Don Eyle’s Pyramid, a sculpture floating in the Fort Point Channel.
Additional temporary art projects will be announced later this summer.
