SF Open Studios, the oldest and largest open studios program in the country, is an annual, month-long art event in October and November that showcases over 800 emerging and established San Francisco artists in their studios. Last year, 2017, marked the 42nd Anniversary of SF Open Studios! To create the best experience for everyone across the city, we have extended the event to five weekends and restructured the SF neighborhood map. We invite you to explore our city and find amazing art at every turn. You’ll discover an authentic connection to your art community and artwork in myriad forms, from painting, photography, and printmaking to glass, metal sculpture, and more. The event connects collectors with artists for engaging dialog and a glimpse into the life of the working artist; SF Open Studios simultaneously helps artists build their mailing list, gain new admirers, and ultimately sustain a living making art. The SF Open Studios event is FREE for visitors.
ABOUT THE PRINTED GUIDE
The SF Open Studios Guide is your travel companion for each weekend of SF Open Studios. The 200-page, full-color, glossy magazine includes artwork and contact information for over 400 SF artists, as well as articles on San Francisco’s renowned art community and a map of each weekend to help you plan your route. The Guide functions as a year-round resource that serves art collectors, art dealers, restaurant owners, interior designers, and other art enthusiasts who want to contact artists directly.
ArtSpan distributes 20,000 copies of the Guide to coffee shops, hotels, museums, bookstores, and many other retail and tourist spots throughout the Bay Area beginning the last week of September through the Open Studios season.
