12:00pm – 7:30pm
13 Joy St., Somerville, MA
Artisan’s Asylum’s newest building is a 9,000 square foot monster of a warehouse, and right now it looks pretty industrial. We have around 4,000 square feet of (currently white) wall in our space, and we want it to come alive with murals painted by our community! Our goal is to have someone walk in off the street, come through the door and say “Whoa… this place is awesome!”
We will have some paint/brushes/rollers available, but we ask that you bring the supplies required for your design if you can. You can give us the receipts for your paint, and we can write you a letter of donation that you can use as a tax deduction! If you can’t buy paint, show up anyway! We’ll need all the help we can get!
We’ll be dividing the room up into themes based on the hugely diverse list of crafts we’d like to offer in the space, so start thinking about what kinds of murals you’d paint for each craft. Our currentllist of crafts include (but aren’t limited to) precision metalwork, welding, electrical fabrication, woodworking, fabricwork and knitting, jewelrymaking, painting, cooking and photography… but really anything that you’d call a craft could fly!
On Friday, June 18th, at 7:00 PM, we have our Grand Opening! The doors officially open on Massachusetts’ largest craft space, which happens to be our 13 Joy Street location! Bring food, we’ll have the circus, an auction, music, and other diverse entertainments. You can read more about it here.
