first friday sowasunday


Mayor Marty is doing his damnest to get us on the hipster-train and prove that yes, Boston may some day be fun. Enter ArtWeek Boston. It's a week that shakes out every Beantown artisan, craftsperson, and food truck entrepreneur. Betty loves it. It's a weekend art attack. These are a few things on the list:

18th Annual Somerville Open Studios
Saturday, April 30th: noon - 6 pm
Sunday, May 1st: noon  6 pm
It's the behemoth, with over 350 local artists {in every. single. medium} opening their studios and workshops to the public. Not sure where to begin? Start your visit at the Artists' Choice Show at the Somerville Museum, at 1 Westwood Rd. Make a note of your favorites, and follow a map to their studio. More tools to help you plan:

Thumbnail images of artist’s work - note your favorites and plot them SOS interactive map.
Downloadable map - you can load an interactive version on an iPad {tech heaven}.
Parking Lots and transport info - park and take a SOS trolley.

Betty Bonus: The amazing All Star Sandwich Bar serves a great burger & fries, and a stellar Muffaletta sandwich. It’s the perfect refueling station.
