People are drawn to JP for its greens spaces, tight-knit community and funky artistic vibe. Jamaica Plain Open Studios (JPOS) brings our diverse and creative community together to converse and deal in fabulous art! Often called one of the most Family Friendly arts events, JPOS takes place in artists’ homes and studios as well as group sites and businesses throughout Jamaica Plain that provides a personal behind the scenes look into local artist’s creative process.
Even seasoned JPOS veterans will find something new. Make the rounds of studios on foot or on the bicycle tour that runs Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 pm. Both days will begin with a free brunch to get the bicycle tour(ists) ready for the tour, sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Arts Council. Local Bikes Not Bombs youth bike-tour leaders will also be on hand to inspect bicycles and give any last-minute tune-ups. Participants will be guided on a leisurely afternoon of biking and studio visits. For more information: http://jpopenstudios.com/news/group-site-registration-0
