Waltham Mills Open Studios is a tradition rooted in both Waltham’s and WMAA’s history, dating back to when the association began in the 1970s. The event is made possible through the generous sponsorship of those dedicated to the arts and through a thriving and supportive Waltham community. Find the full list of sponsors here.

About The Waltham Mills Artists Association
The Waltham Mills Artists Association (WMAA) comprises more than 70 artists working in a wide range of media who occupy studio space in two buildings at 144 Moody Street in downtown Waltham, MA. The larger WMAA building was named The Ira B. Gordon Center for the Arts in 2011 for Ira B (Sonny) Gordon, a prominent local businessman, and a leader in the transformation of the downtown Waltham area. His family has named the building after Sonny in recognition of his commitment to the arts and his leadership role in developing a community in which artists could flourish. The WMAA hosts Waltham Mills Open Studios annually every Fall to welcome the community into studios to see where art is made.
