Note: The ability to have in-person events will depend on both current Massachusetts/Somerville COVID restrictions and weather. If cases increase and either the state or the city move to stricter COVID restrictions, all in-person events will be cancelled. If there is excessive wind, rain, or other inclement weather, all in-person events will be cancelled. Somerville Open Studios cannot hold or promote indoor in-person events for 2021.
Outdoor home/studio displays
• Weather permitting, artists may set up outdoors at their home or studio.
• All outdoor displays must meet current COVID requirements. Review the Somerville Outdoor Market Guidelines and /or the City of Somerville Coronavirus 2019 information page for details.
• Get inspired by our tips on setting up an outdoor display.
Outdoor community space
The SOS team is in discussion with the City of Somerville to figure out if it’s possible to have an outdoor community space at a park or other location. We do not have any details to share at this time, but if we are able to have this event, it will be limited to fewer than 20 artists, who will be chosen by lottery.
As soon as information is confirmed, we will share it via email and on the Artist Updates page.
