The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center, Artists Alliance Inc., and the Clemente Residents are pleased to announce the 26th edition of The Clemente Open Studios on Saturday, May 21 from 4-8p and Sunday, May 22, 2023 from 2-6p.
Housing more than 46 visual artists’ studios and 11 visual and performing arts organizations, The Clemente community is thrilled to welcome friends, colleagues, and neighbors back into their home on the Lower East Side. The public is invited to explore this multigenerational community of artists, some of whom have lived and worked in the neighborhood for more than two decades, and residents of participating residency programs. The Clemente stands as a complement and bridge to the area’s current development, housed in the beautiful, former PS 160 designed in 1897 by Charles B. J. Snyder in the Dutch neo-Gothic style.
This year’s event will feature five floors of visual and performing arts as part of the 5th edition of Public Spaces Open Studios (PSOS2023), Capoeira Festival, performances, workshops, and film screenings. All events are FREE and open to the public.
