This weekend is Somerville Open Studios! (Were you wondering what the orange balloons on street corners were all about?)
From the SOS website: “Visit nearly 400 artists in over 100 venues who will open their homes and studios for the 14th Annual Somerville Open Studios Event on Friday, May 4 from 6pm – 9pm and Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, 2012 from noon to 6 pm. During this free showcase for the arts, mid-career and emerging artists working across a broad spectrum of fine art styles and craft media will exhibit and sell their work to the public.”
14th annual?! Goes to show that Somerville has been cool for a long time. (Thanks, Boston Phoenix, for the recent mention of Somerville as the Best Place to Live in 2012.)
Happy Sunday – check out some open houses and visit a few Somerville Open Studios!
