Hunters Point Shipyard Artists to host holiday party, art show

More than 50 artists at the Hunters Point Shipyard will be opening their studio doors to the public Sunday for a special holiday party and art show.

The Hunters Point Shipyard Artists are one of the largest communities of artists in the country, with more than 250 artists working out of the space. The arts community was founded in 1983, when several artists began renovating the old shipyard into art studios and work spaces.

This winter’s holiday party marks just one of the three times per year that the Shipyard is open to the public. A full list of participating artists can be found here.

The open house will take place on Dec 4, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Directions can be found on the Shipyard’s website. Admission and parking are free.
