The SoWa Art + Design District is a vibrant community of artist studios, contemporary art galleries, one-of-a-kind boutiquesdesign showrooms, and restaurants unified by a passion for creating and curating exceptional artworks, products and experiences.

Once known as a region of neglected warehouses in Boston’s South End, the SoWa Art + Design District has experienced a dramatic renaissance, blossoming into a world-renowned arts, retail, and lifestyle destination.

Developed to support and preserve Boston's talented artists and entrepreneurs, SoWa connects visitors with a dynamic group of makers and thinkers, and offers a platform to showcase their work at now-famous events such as the SoWa Open MarketSoWa First Fridays and the SoWa Art Walk. 


Studio 213 is a collaborative space for artists and ideas


SoWa First Fridays occur the first Friday of every month, 5 - 9 PM.
Join us and other galleries and studios as we open our doors for these open house events.
