SOS: See Our Shows!

Our main event is still a couple of weeks away, but you can see some of our art right now.

  • A visit to SOS First Look, at the Somerville Museum, is a great way to plan out your SOS weekend. Every participating SOS artist was invited to contribute one work to this show.

    This week (April 26-29), SOS First Look will be open Thursday and Friday 2-8 pm, Saturday noon-8 pm, and Sunday noon-5 pm.

  • The SOS Volunteer Show, now on the walls of Diesel Cafe in Davis Square, showcases work by the many volunteers who have made SOS happen from 1999 to the present.

    We'll have a reception on Thursday, April 26, from 6-8 pm, but you don't need to wait until then to visit the show.

  • In the nearby windows of the Davis Square CVS, the Inside-Out Gallery presents highlights of SOS's 20-year history.
  • The SOS Kids' Art Show displays work by Somerville's littlest artists on the walls of the Armory Cafe, 191 Highland Avenue.
  • Cracked: The Nut Show, featuring SOS artists' rendering of this delectable food, is now in the windows of Q's Nuts, 349 Highland Avenue.
