Make an evening of it! Little Bird Events and Irish Brewing Boston will be open for business. EventKore will be on hand with Premium photo booth experiences by Luxury booth, and there will be live music. Plus, The Magic Room Presents Zephyr, and The Night Owls Doors Open at 7:00 p.m.
The newly formed SONO Arts represents the arts community within the Norwood Space Center and advocates artistic and cultural exchange by facilitating dialogue, exhibits, and events in collaboration with the South Norwood (SONO) district and surrounding communities. The Spring Open Studios is presented in conjunction with “Norwood Art Walk and Open Studios” to showcase SONO Arts members as well as other area artists.
Norwood Art Walk and Open Studios is funded in part thanks to the generosity of the Norwood Cultural Council, Mass Cultural Council, and the Norwood Space Center. Partners in planning include the Friends of Norwood Center and the Norwood Art Association.
