Open Studio Tour
Thank you for attending the 2018 Fall Open Studio Tour!
Please join us again next year to plan another arts adventure — exploring over 200 artists’ studios throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona.
The Fall Open Studio Tour in Southern Arizona is one of the largest, self-guided tours of artist studios and creative work spaces in the region. The mission is to support and promote local artists who work and exhibit in Southern Arizona. Visitors are invited into the artists’ studios free of charge, to engage directly with their work and learn more about their artistic process.
As a funding agency, The Arts Foundation seeks to find and fund the best artists and/or art organizations for projects that will continue to highlight and enrich Tucson and Southern Arizona’s sense of place and culture. As a result, Arts Foundation will contract with a vendor to produce the Open Studio Tours event.
The partnership between Arts Foundation and the vendor will support and advance the Open Studio Tours throughout the Tucson and Southern Arizona region, and provide resources for hundreds of local artists to showcase, develop, and promote their original artwork in the community.
“Artists can have greater access to reality; they can see patterns and details and connections that other people, distracted by the blur of life, might miss. Just sharing that truth can be a very powerful thing.”
