Open Studios Art Tour

This October, ARTS Obispo will host our 20th anniversary Open Studios Art Tour!

Join the celebration as artists throughout SLO County open their studios during this creative and inspiring FREE event.


San Luis Obispo County will be celebrating art and wine during harvest season, weekends October 13/14 and 20/21, 2018. 

Artist studios will be open from 10am-5pm each day. Some artists may offer live demonstrations of their creative process.

Visitors can plan their self-guided tours by using the printed full-color catalog, online catalog, or mobile map. Printed catalogs can be found at various locations throughout San Luis Obispo County beginning in mid-September 2018.

I'm an artist, how can I participate in the Tour?

Applications are now available for the 20th Anniversary of the Open Studios Art Tour 2018! Click here to find out more.

Visitors are invited to get to know the artists through "Meet the Open Studios Art Tour Artists Blog".
