ArtPlace Advisory Group Field Trip!
Sun, May 5, 2013 1:30pm - 3pm
Site visit to SOWA Open Market
ArtPlace in Uphams Corner is planning an Advisory Group field trip on Sunday, May, 2013 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm to Boston's SOWA Open Market - this in preparation for piloting an Uphams Corner open market for local crafters, artists, musicians and other producers of local products.
The ArtPlace project in Uphams Corner is planning to pilot a small scale market in the late summer and early fall that will provide Uphams Corner area crafters, artists, musicians and other producers of local products with an opportunity to showcase and sell their work.
In preparation, the ArtPlace Advisory Group will be visiting a few markets to gather ideas, with a visit to Boston's SOWA Open Market on Monday May 5, 2013 being the first such visit.
Please RSVP and to let us know if you need a ride! Contact Liora Beer at firstname.lastname@example.org
