#1 It all starts with a party

We are counting down the 19 days until the start of the 19th annual City-Wide Open Studios with the 19 things new for this year’s edition, GAME ON!


#1 on our countdown to City-Wide Open Studios, it all starts with a party! Join us TONIGHT from 5-8pm for the opening reception for City-Wide Open Studios GAME ON!

The magnitude of New Haven’s diverse artistic interests comes to life! Find one work by every participating artist, arranged in a grid by weekend. This year, over 300 artists are participating!

Special additions to the evening include:

  • At 5pm, Artspace’s 2015-16 Artist-in-Residence Eben Kling will give an artist talk about his exhibition in the Project Room, Humanoids.
  • At 6pm, move outside to Orange Street, where artists will take part in the Total Jump group jump and photograph. Join this sudden burst of energy and be captured by Judy Sirota Rosenthal to commemorate all of this year’s City-Wide Open Studios artists, supporters, and fans.
  • From 5-8pm, obstacle course on Orange St. Limber up for the games to come at Game On! Artspace and Elm City Coach have mixed and matched their gear to create a great way to maneuver across Orange Street. Whether you’re in your sweats or your suit, there is a course for you.
  • From 5-8pm,  DJ Dave Chambers will be keeping the party going out on Orange Street (weather permitting)
  • From 6-8pm On9 New Haven will present NoodlesOn9 featuring a noodle festival from your favorite 9th Square eateries.
  • Let your friends know you’re coming, join our Facebook Event.
