While the rest of the country was naming Somerville “the hippest city in America,” our local artists were preparing for an annual tradition. The Somerville Open Studios is one of the largest events of its kind in the nation, and this Saturday, artists from across the ‘Ville will open their doors to the public. The list of artists participating this year is staggering, and they work in all sorts of media, from paints to glass to video and more.
While the main event starts on Saturday, some artists are participating in a sneak preview this Friday night. Every part of the city is represented in this year’s Open Studios, and with the trees and flowers in full spring bloom, I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the weekend. Come out and see what Somerville’s artists have been up to!
