The Kickoff Party is free and open to all.
What is Open Studios? Beacon Open Studios (BOS) is a city-wide art event, connecting local artist and their studios to the public. BOS provides a casual environment in which visitors can chat with artists in their workspaces while allowing an up-close look at what artists do behind closed doors. Visitors to this event can pick up a free map for self-guided tours of the 80 artists’ studios that will be open. Tourists and art enthusiasts alike have total viewing access to workspaces where artists display past, current and artworks in progress. Many of Beacon’s artists have shown nationally and internationally, some have their works in the permanent collections of respected art institutions. For other participating artists it may be their first time showing in any public situation. Beacon Open Studios is in its second year, scheduled for September 25-26, 2010. All studios will be open from noon-6pm on Saturday and Sunday.
