Fort Point Open Studios
We love going to the biannual Fort Point Open Studios! The neighborhood is home to so many amazing artists, and the chance to chat with them and see their work is such a treat. Plus, the area also has one of our favorite coffee shops and lots of delicious restaurants to stop in to after you take in the art.
This weekend, the event (in its 36th year!) will include more than 150 artists. The studios, all within easy walking distance from each other, are open on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6pm, with selected studios also open on Friday evening from 4-7pm.
On Saturday from 7-9:30pm, a large-scale video project presented in conjunction with Emerson College titled Electric Pilgrims will be on view. The video projections will illuminate the exterior of Midway Studios, at 15 Channel Street. The public art series includes floating sheep in the Fort Point Channel (Who Wears Wool, by Hilary Zelson) recalling the area’s connection to the wool industry, a floating pyramid (Don Eyles‘ PYR 2014), and a plexiglass sculpture from John Hansen.
Maps and information will be available at 249 A Street, 300 Summer Street, the Midway Artists’ Building at 15 Channel Center Street, as well as at the corners of Binford and A Street, and at A Street and Melcher. This is such a fun event – definitely worth checking out this weekend! More information is available on the FPAC website.
