If you have not yet discovered East Boston, you are in for a treat. The Boston Writer blog says “…East Boston is an easy point of access to downtown Boston, a community of vibrant businesses, tasty restaurants, a thriving arts scene, and gorgeous parks“. East Boston Open Studios is organized by the East Boston Artists Group, a volunteer organization made up of artists living and working in East Boston. The group sponsors arts events throughout the East Boston neighborhood including an Open House and Holiday Sale in December. The Open Studios event is supported by a grant from the East Boston Foundation with administrative support from ZUMIX. Come see what makes East Boston shine: the art, the people, and the vitality of life on Boston Harbor.

The Atlantic Works building is a quick 5-minute walk from the Maverick Station on the Blue Line. If driving, there is plenty of free on-street parking.
