    Closed for Snow 1/2 and 1/3

    2014 - 01.01

    Hi all,

    Winter storm Hercules is coming tomorrow and could last until Friday.  Somerville has already declaired a snow emergency for tomorrow, Thursday Jan 2nd and have canceled school on January 3rd as well.  Our information from the city is that they expect the snow emergency to continue until Friday night.

    The asylum will be closed to the public.  We will be closed to visitors, day pass users and tours.  We are sorry for this inconvenience and hope to see everyone this weekend.  Members with Key cards will be able to use the facility as normal.

    Our parking lot at 30 Dane street will be closed as soon as we have two inches of snow to facilitate snow removal.  It is expected to be re opened at approximately the same time as Somerville lifts the snow emergency.

    If you have any questions, Please contact Rob@artisansasylum.com with any questions.
