Currently, we participate in three main annual events:
• Art Exhibit at City Hall Plaza, Mayor’s Gallery
• Hyde Park Open Studios
• Artscene summer festival

The Hyde Park Open Studios is held each year. This event features artists that live and/or work in the Hyde Park area and showcases the diverse artistic talent of these artists. For more information on the Hyde Park Open Studios, click here to get more information.

The Artscene summer festival takes place in Cleary Square on Fairmount Ave. The festival, which attracted 700 neighborhood residences in July, offers one-day vendor licenses to artists, and also showcases musical and dance performances. For photos of past Artscenes, click here for 2008, 2007.

Our third annual event is our exhibit at City Hall Plaza in Scollay Square. This is a juried exhibit and runs the month of April. You can view photos from this event for 2008.
