Re: Sec. of Arts petition

Alot of communities that I know of have a gallery night, for example,

Providence, Rhode Island has 3rd Thursdays, It is a public/private partnership between city, state & corporate sponsors.

Concord, New Hampshire has ART CONCORD which is a multi-group opening of Concord Art Galleries open on the same night for everyone’s enjoyment, under the sponsorship of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, for information:

Boston has 1st Fridays in the gallery district, SoWA (South of Washington St) when all the galleries coordinate their opening receptions from 6-8p. Since most galleries rent from the same landlord, the management company plays a role in coordinating communication, parking and logistics at the event.

Western Ave Studios in Lowell, Massachusetts has FIRST SATURDAYS Open Studios - First Saturday of every month, noon to 5pm - Western Avenue Studios opens its doors to the public. Come browse the latest works by our artists!

And most communities have an annual Open Studios weekend, it seems.

Good luck getting something started in your community!
