Open Studios 2018 will take place the first three weekends of October.

Open Studios is a free self-guided tour that invites the public into more than 300 artist studios across Santa Cruz County.
For 33 years, our goal has been simple: connect artists with people who love art. For the first three weekends in October, Open Studios not only shines a light on the variety and talent of visual artists in our community, it also ignites relationships, inspires conversations, and bridges gaps of understanding between art appreciators and creators, creating connections that extend far beyond the tour.
