From the official CWOS Website:

The Alternative Space weekend sets New Haven’s CWOS apart from other open studio weekends by offering artists from across Connecticut, and those who are interested in creating site-specific works, a unique backdrop to showcase their talents. Each year the Alternative Space provides artists with the chance to show work in vacant historic properties throughout the city, connecting artists and visitors with different areas of New Haven. This year’s exhibition will take place in the Goffe Street Armory (290 Goffe Street, New Haven), a colonial armory full of rich New Haven history. At an area of 155,000 square feet, the Goffe Street Armory presents a unique backdrop for visual artists to showcase their ideas and for visitors to enjoy the art. Stop by between 12:00-5:00 PM.
