ArtWeek Boston and Vintage Market MA come to Norwood Space Center on Saturday, April 29 from 9:00AM to 4:00PM and Sunday, April 30 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. For two days, the Norwood Space Center will come alive through a variety of free family friendly exhibits conversations, live music and more.
Vintage Market MA, a pop-up market, will feature vintage finds and accessories, unique items for home and garden as well as up cycled furniture and select artisans.
Planet Self Storage Gallery will exhibit artifacts from the nationally renowned David Bieber Archives, featuring pop culture collectibles and rock and roll memorabilia. The Sneaker Museum will present its Air Jordan Space Jam Exhibition including rare sneakers and Space Jam movie posters. David Bieber Archives and The Sneaker Museum are early tenants of the redeveloped property.
The weekend will also feature a series of conversations hosted by Norwood Public Access TV designed to entertain, engage and inform. The talks will offer a behind-the-scenes look at artists and their creative process including a reading by WZLX Boston DJ and music historian Carter Alan, author of The Decibel Diaries. Dr. Patricia Fanning and Josh Kastorf will speak about F. Holland Day and his contribution to art and the birth of the Arts & Crafts movement in America and its ties to Norwood.
Mad Science will offer SLIPPERY SCIENCE, an education and interactive opportunity for kids to learn about polymers and allow them to make their own Slime to take home and experiment with. The Fireseed Arts, a collective of artists committed to raising awareness of the impacts of our lifestyle on the environment through art and music, will host a hands-on workshop sponsored by Music Drives Us focusing on creating rock steady music from instruments handmade almost entirely from recycled materials from bucket drums and electric guitars, to the more exotic madinda and cajon.
Reliving the culture of the legendary WBCN Lunchtime Concert, Norwood’s School of Rock will perform live both Saturday and Sunday, and food will be available.
"The versatility of our property will be on display through the ArtWeek Boston programming and the Vintage Market," said property developer David DePree. "We’re looking forward to offering this preview of the space for the entire community."
Set at the site of the historic mill building, Norwood Space Center is a $10,000,000 renovation of a centuries old industrial complex dedicated to commerce and innovation. Originally the home for Bird & Sons roofing business, the complex expanded in the early 1900’s to house the company’s floor covering manufacturing business. Located conveniently between Boston and Providence, the Norwood Space Center is designed as mixed-use development, where people and businesses can thrive in a community setting using shared work space, self-storage and commercial and industrial space, market space or event space.
A Grand Opening Celebration at Norwood Space Center will take place this summer to mark the completion of the first phase of renovations of the property by 83 Morse LLC, a joint venture between Cathartes LLC, Juliano Enterprises Inc., and David DePree.
The Norwood Space Center is located at 83 Morse Street with easy access from Rtes. 1 and 95, the commuter rail, a range of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and the Automile.
