How to get a rebate on your artist registration fee and get more people to come visit your site or business!
Individual artists, local residents and businesses can become private or hosted artist sites during the Jamaica Plain Open Studios. In doing so, they can help keep alive the sense of community and comradery that takes place during JPOS.
Individual Artists who choose to share their space with 2 or more other artists become "Hosting Artists" and are eligible for rebates of up to 50% of their registration fees. If you are hosting 2 or more registered artists during the event, let us know BEFORE THE EVENT and we will hook you up!
Local residents can host artists on their front porch, front lawn, or even in their home, if they are so willing. Their location will be listed on our map and in our directory for the weekend. It is a wonderful way to meet your neighbors, show off your beautiful home or just get a chance to hang out with an artist for a day or two.
Businesses can also benefit from hosting an artist by putting the work in their window, on their walls or in a corner of their space.
Some ideas for making this a fun and successful project:
- Host a Preview Opening the Friday night before Open Studios.
- Send out invitations to everyone one you know announcing the Preview and Open Studios.
- Plan a little bbq and whip up hot dogs for people who come to visit.
- Make it a party weekend and just have a great time enjoying the Art!
