SoWa Art & Design District


SoWa is a vibrant community of artist studios, contemporary art galleries, one-of-a-kind boutiques, design showrooms, restaurants and entrepreneurs unified by a passion for creating and curating exceptional artworks, products and experiences. Once known as a parcel of neglected warehouses in Boston’s South End, the SoWa Art & Design District has experienced a dramatic renaissance, blossoming into a world-renowned retail & arts community that includes the famous SoWa Open Market, the SoWa Vintage Market, and a fashionable residential neighborhood.



Located at the Intersection of Creativity & Community 


Originally derived from a shortening of "South of Washington," SoWa spans the area from Mass Ave to Herald St and from Shawmut Ave to Albany St. Ample parking is available and public transportation includes the Broadway, Tufts or Back Bay T stations or the Silver Line bus stop.
