Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Open Studios was started in 1993 by a group of artists who set aside one weekend in the fall to invite the public into their spaces to tour their studios and view their art. Today, the JPOS is one of the oldest open studio programs in New England. It continues to expand and now introduces over 200 artists at 75 sites to new audiences every year.
Open Studios has become the single most important event of the year for Jamaica Plain artists, accounting for a majority of their sales for the entire year. The arts community is essential to the health and vitality of Jamaica Plain, and Open Studios is essential to the health - even existence - of the arts community.
