Many artists live in Dorchester and have home studios.  Many artists work in groups sites such as the Pearl Street Studios or the Humphreys Street Studios.  Many pieces of public art exist in Dorchester and that number is growing.

The question is this:  How can we celebrate and share the rich artistic abundance here with everyone?

Open Studios is more than a week long event with particular emphasis on getting to know the art, celebrating the art and getting to know the artists and their work.
The weekend of October 22, 23 and 24 are the dates when most of the activities are taking place.  There's an awful lot to see and a lot of talented and accomplished artists to meet.

We're summarizing the activities here.  However, your best sources of information are at the DAC website and through the DAC blog.
