Get there on time as anyone who has been there will tell you the building is like a maze and it may be difficult to find us once we get started. Mingle with Artist and learn about their creative process over light snacks and beverages. You may want to bring your wallet. ;- )

Erector Square (315 Peck Street) acts as a hub of artistic activity in Fair Haven. A high concentration of artist studios—housed in a former Erector Set factory—make it an especially exciting place to be during Open Studios. Explore the personal studios of hundreds of local artists on your own or through a guided tour. Artspace volunteers will be on hand with maps, schedules of demonstrations and directions for visitors.
