Interact with members of the public who stop in. Show works in progress or give demonstrations. Explain your creative process and answer questions. Some artists offer snacks to visitors. Most of all, have fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Tucson Artists' Open Studios?

Tucson artists have traditionally invited the public into their studios twice a year as part of an open studio tour event. For the ninth year in a row, no formal arts organization is coordinating the Spring Open Studios, so this is an artist-initiated event. It will be promoted to the extent of the funds raised.

My studio isn't conveniently located. Is there a downtown place I can set up for the weekend?

Yes. Space is available at the Steinfeld Warehouse Community Arts Center in the heart of the Historic Warehouse Arts District, 101 W Sixth St. A $30 fee will help provide lighting for this and other events in the future. Contact David Aguirre for more info: dinnerwareartspace@gmail.com.
