LynnHappens recommends that you begin at the Lynn Museum, then work your way out to all the downtown locations. Grab lunch downtown or at Walnut Street Cafe while shopping their artist market. Walnut Street’s coffee or tea will fuel you through the labyrinthian Lydia Pinkham studios, a remarkable complex that really does have surprises around every corner. Or, if you tend to linger, hit the spots with earlier closing times first. Lydia Pinkham, Lynn Museum, J.B. Blood and LynnArts should take the most time to complete due to the various participants they contain, but no site should be missed. There is plenty of street parking, but if it does become a challenge, the MBTA lot downtown is only $4 for as long as you want.
Lynn Open Studios is Sponsored by Lynn Housing and Neighborhood Development and The Lynn Museum and Historical Society. Supporters of this event include Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy, LynnHappens.com, EDIC, The Office of Economic and Community Development, Lynn Cultural Council, Central Exchange Arts District, and Extras for Creative Learning.
