The Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC) builds cultural vibrancy in Boston by cultivating an empowered community of artists, organizations, and supporters. FPAC promotes the work of our artists to a broad and diverse audience, advocates for art opportunities, develops permanent, affordable live-work studio space and ensures that art is an essential part of the life of a creative city.
Since 1978 , Fort Point artists have opened their studios to the public during the third weekend in October. The Open Studios Weekend attracts about 2,500 visitors to our neighborhood. This event offers the public a rare glimpse into the living and working spaces of artists, while providing a valuable opportunity for artists to sell their work.
During the Open Studios weekend the FPAC Gallery hosts a group show for FPAC members. The Group Show allows visitors to see a sample of the work of many different artists in one place, while also giving members who are not able to open their studios an opportunity to be represented.
Open Studios is a festive event for the artists involved. It is a time for them to celebrate after months of preparation and hard work, as well as to reaffirm their vitality and strength as a community in the face of so many changes and challenges.
