Mass Cultural Council believes that the work of individual artists is at the core of our vital communities. You can connect with artists in your own neighborhood at an open studio event.
Many 2020 open studios have been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, but some organizers have found a way forward. Some events are scaled back or have moved outdoors. Some have shifted to virtual events, with accompanying video talks and livestreams. The following list includes in-person or virtual open studios in Massachusetts* this October and November.
If you plan to attend an in-person event, please verify event details and visitor protocols at the event organizer’s web site.
