Many years ago Mudflat purchased the old theatre building on Broadway in Somerville. After years of hard work by Mudflat Director Lynn Gervens, the Mudflat Board of Directors, the staff and donors it finally looks like this project will be completed this year. The new building will be an amazing, inspiring space for professional artists and student artists to work and learn together. For the full scoop on the renovation, go the Mudflat Studio Renovation blog. Below are a few highlights from that blog:

The two doorways you see open to few of the artist studios on the second floor (the door on the left will by my studio, which I’ll be sharing with Monica Ripley). Notice all of the light beaming down from the clerestory. Here’s an outside view of the clerestory in process:
There will be a big event to celebrate the move to the new building, likely in August or September. Visit the Mudflat Studio Events Calendar to sign up for their newsletter or to donate to the building fund.
