Dorchester Arts Collaborative - Open Studios this Weekend

What is Open Studios? Many artists live in Dorchester and have home studios. Dorchester Arts CollaborativeMany artists work in group 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 in Dorchester 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 in Dorchester.  There's a reception, a bike ride and two afternoons of visits to local area artist studios.

More about this event and how to contact them.
