Visitors and art enthusiasts have total viewing access to workspaces where artists display past, current and artworks in progress. This year’s event scheduled for September 25-26, 2010. With more than 50 participating artists last year, we happily expect this year’s event to exceed 70 participants. BOS is made possible with the support of BACA
