* USEA Artists in their Studios *

Saturday January 26, 2019 – 11 to 5PM



The USEA is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of artists who live and work in Boston’s South End. Its mission is to support local artists and to help promote the arts in the community by organizing opportunities and events for artists to show and publicize their work, including group shows and exhibits throughout the year.
All events are free and open to the public.

USEA History


In 1986 a group of artists at the Boston Center for the Arts invited friends and neighbors into their studios to view their art. As other artists in the area became interested in the event, the United South End Artists was formed, and the South End Open Studios weekend came into being. Today the event covers a dozen studio buildings and more than 250 artists, encompassing all of Boston’s South End, attracting thousands of visitors from surrounding towns as well as the greater Boston area. In 1996 the USEA was granted 501(c)3 status. The South End Open Studios event allows visitors to see where and how art is made, and to meet the artists.
The USEA also sponsors several other art events during the year.
