Welcome to Brookline Open Studios & Marketplace!

Brookline Open Studios 2021 will take place October 2, 2021 from 11AM – 5PM (rain date October 3, 2021)!

Brookline Open Studios started in 1986 when a handful of artists living in Brookline opened up their home studios to the general public one weekend in the spring. Since then, more and more artists have participated, sharing their work and process of creating with the community. Brookline Open Studios is a unique and engaging event that showcases the diverse range of artists and creative works from Brookline and beyond. The event will be in-person this year at two locations: the Brookline Arts Center at Monmouth Park and Station Street, Brookline Village. Both sites will feature activities and community fun!
