Open Studios is a self-guided tour that attracts thousands of visitors from near and far who learn about and purchase art straight from the source. Open Studios not only shines a light on the vast variety and sheer talent of visual artists in our community, it also ignites relationships, inspires conversations, and bridges gaps of understanding between art appreciators and creators, establishing connections that extend far beyond the tour.
Now in its 34th year, the Open Studios Art Tour is one of Santa Cruz County’s most anticipated annual art happenings. Each year hundreds of Open Studios artists throughout the county open their creative spaces to the public during the first three weekends of October.
