June 5th – 27th, 2021
Due to the pandemic the Somerville Museum wasn’t able to host the annual “First Look Show” during April/May of this year. Instead, we’re collaborating with Somerville Open Studios (SOS) to offer a “Last Look Show” that showcases the local artists currently registered with SOS. This is a non-juried show and gives artists another opportunity to interact with the community.
Admission: Since this exhibition is sponsored by Somerville Open Studios, entrance is free and open to all. Donations to the Museum are always welcome!

During the month of June, July and August, we will be featuring work by Katherine Taylor, a Boston based photographer who covers news and human interest stories. Her most recent project, “Masks of Boston,” features many Somerville residents and is incredibly relevant to the current social climate.
