Join hundreds of area residents and art enthusiasts at this year's Open Studios weekend, November 2-3, 2013. Together with Lincoln Studios, WMAA will open its doors to the public for this free, annual event where visitors are invited to walk through more than 80 artists' studios, meet the artists, and view and buy their work.

WMAA is one of Greater Boston's oldest artists' communities, with more than 70 artists working in a wide range of media, including sculpture, glass, printmaking, painting, textiles, photography, woodworking, film, video and much more. Lincoln Studios, a newer artists' community that occupies the old Jordan's furniture building at 289 Moody Street, houses more than a dozen artists and the Lincoln Arts Project gallery space.
