Made In Fort Point, founded by FPAC in 2008, and originally located on Farnsworth Street, is celebrating its grand opening at its new location in Fort Point’s innovative residential complex, 315 on A. Developer Gerding Edlen continues their commitment to connect innovative and local artists with their residences and properties by collaborating with the Boston-based Fort Point Arts Community. Additionally, FPAC and MIFP are fortunate to count several local businesses as corporate sponsors for the store, most notably Gerding Edlen and the Barking Crab (88 Sleeper Street).

 

During the opening, two special events will be taking place: throughout the evening, “Wear Your Art on Your Sleeve: A Presentation of Wearable Pieces” will be ongoing, in addition to an artist talk by Liliana Folta in celebration of her public art installation at the store’s entrance.

 

“Wear Your Art on Your Sleeve: A Presentation of Wearable Pieces” will include Fort Point artists showing their locally made, one-of-a-kind clothing as a preview of Boston Fashion Week. Margaret DeBruin shows upcycled children’s clothing and accessories, Jen Mecca brings her hand-dyed shibori scarves, Amy Nguyen presents sculptural and functional cloth pieces, Anh and Philip Sawyer display their apparel for men and women, and Jen Stark introduces her fall sweater line.

 

At 6pm  Liliana Folta will give an artist talk in celebration of her public art installation “Flower Blanket – The Farewell to Summer” located on the West Service Road entrance. Board President Jen Mecca will join her to provide a history of the Fort Point Arts Community’s (FPAC) involvement with public art. ‘”Flower Blanket -The Farewell to Summer” is a nostalgic representation of the end of a season – bright colors, robust gardens and sunny days. For this installation plastic materials were used to raise awareness on keeping waste off the streets – food containers, bottles, plastic and paper bags seem to adorn a city that keeps growing at a fast pace.
