City Hall to feature work by the united south end artists
July 1, 2015
Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the Scollay Square Gallery, located on the 3rd floor of City Hall, will feature work from the United South End Artists (USEA). The exhibition will feature art of varied mediums, themes and styles by 20 USEA artists.
In 1986, a group of artists at the Boston Center for the Arts invited friends and neighbors into their studios to view their art. As other artists in the area became interested in the event, the United South End Artists was formed, and the South End Open Studios weekend came into being. Today the event covers a dozen studio buildings and more than 250 artists, encompassing all of Boston's South End, attracting thousands of visitors from surrounding towns as well as the greater Boston area. The South End Open Studios event allows visitors to see where and how art is made, and to meet the artists. The USEA also sponsors several other art events during the year.
The Galleries at Boston City Hall are open the public at no charge and are fully accessible. City Hall Plaza is accessible by MBTA via Haymarket (Orange and Green), State Street (Orange and Blue) or Park Street (Green and Red).
