FORT POINT SPRING ART WALK
Where is Fort Point? It’s just across the channel from south Station, adjacent to the Seaport and technically a part of Southie. Fort Point is one of New England?s largest artist communities, home to over 300 artists who produce work in a wide array of media.
The Fort Point Spring Art Walk is happening on Mother’s Day Weekend! Enjoy a stroll through our lovely and rapidly changing neighborhood. What a great way to spend time with your mom.
While we won’t be opening the doors at #601 (coming off maternity leave), I will have some recent pieces up in the building.
Friday, May 12: Preview all galleries and select studios 4-7 pm
Saturday, May 13 & Sunday, May 14: 12-6 pm
It will be more than studios doors being opened. There will be performances and public art as well. For a full schedule of activities check fortpointarts.org.
