Rewind: The Former Fort Point Artists Show

In Art We Like on September 13, 2010 at 4:32 pm

27 Artists from the past 35 Years

Through September 17th at ART at 12

When artists first began moving into the Fort Point Channel section of Boston they were true pioneers, showing the way for communities nationwide to rejuvenate old manufacturing properties for use as art studios and meccas. The Fort Point neighborhood with its warehouses and lofts, has been home to thousands of artists since approximately 1975. They left for a variety of reasons – from falling in love to displacement by development. Many of these trendsetters will return for this show Aug. 1- Sept. 17.
