The 30th Jamaica Plain Open Studios takes place on September 23 & 24, 2023. Saturday, 11am – 6pm & Sunday, 11am – 4pm
Looking for a way to spend a few hours, a day or a whole beautiful autumn weekend browsing art, meeting artists and neighbors and generally having an awesome time? Well, look no further. Come and check out this year’s Jamaica Plain Open Studios, one of the most neighborhood and family friendly open studios around. We have been introducing audiences and artists to each other and giving people a chance to see behind the canvas for 30 years.
New for JPOS 2023! We have launched an interactive, digital map option. Look for the QR code on posters around town.
The free printed JPOS 2023 maps will be available at many JP businesses and will also be available during the event at the information booth located in front of JP Licks (659 Center St.).
A download of the JPOS 2023 map is also available through the button below. All Open Studios sites are MBTA accessible on the Orange Line at the Jackson Square, Stony Brook, Green Street and Forest Hills stations as well as several bus routes. More information is available by calling 617-855-5767 (JPOS).
In addition to over 180 artists showcasing work around the neighborhood, this year’s JP Open Studios will feature “30 for 30,” a unique series of 30 temporary public art installations celebrating 30 years of JPOS. Select a location on the map to learn more about each installation!
The “30 for 30” installation project will include a collection of “art chairs” in front of West Cork Auto, youth-made bicycle art at Bikes Not Bombs, a clothespin sculpture about climate change at Pondside Dental, an interactive radio station at Red Sun Press, and an homage to Black West Roxbury Soldiers at JP’s Civil War Monument. Other planned installations include a 12-foot skeleton, an art book exchange, a wall of quilts, a flower-based display, and a “tiny art” show.
