love boston + love artists = love fort point.
fort point is right across the water from the financial district of boston, a bronx-ish neighborhood that is experiencing a new surge of life: thanks (hugely) in part to the talented artisits who fill the industrial lofts that line streets, disguised as warehouses and other massive old buildings. inside each is an enclave of cool, artsy folks who produce everything from paintings and pottery to jewelry and photographs. the opportunity to check out their studios and their work comes twice a year — a ‘preview’ art walk in the spring, and then the larger open studios event in the fall.
