The Roslindale substation at 4228 Washington Street, one of Boston’s truly underrated buildings, is hosting a popup artists space and public gallery into September. The popup popped up on July 14.
It is being run by an entity that two M.I.T. graduate students founded called Spaceus, which says it “keeps cities creative by transforming vacant and underutilized buildings in the heart of the city into collective and collaborative artist studios.”
The substation had hosted a popup beer garden through Boston’s Trillium Brewing Co. That closed in March.
Spaceus’ space is hosting not only working artists—who can apply here to set up there—but workshops and activities for the general public as well as retail options for purchasing artists’ work.
The substation popup is only open to that general public during certain events (check out the schedule) and will otherwise be open to paying members from 12 to 8 on weekdays and 9 to 5 on weekends.
