Boulder, CO (PRWEB) September 29, 2006
WHAT: The finest visual artists in Boulder will open their studios to the public in celebration of the 12th Anniversary of Open Studios this fall. These artists, who work with a variety of media - including sculpting, woodworking, painting, photography, ceramics and more - will open their private studios for self-guided tours for two consecutive weekends.
More than 4,000 people are expected to make more than 65,000 studio visits this year. Visitors are encouraged to question the artists about particular aspects of their work and their artistic process. At some studios, materials are available for adults and children to try their hand at creating similar art. The artists also display completed works, which may be purchased.
HOW: A full color, calendar-style Guidebook with a studio map will be for sale at several Front Range locations for $16. Purchase is NOT required to participate in the tour, which is free and open to the public, but makes the tour easier and helps support Open Studios, a not-for-profit organization.
WHERE: Open Studios signs and the Official Guidebook will direct visitors to the studios around Boulder. This year there are also bike routes which are designated on the map. In the Guidebook, specific symbols will also note wheelchair accessibility, as well as studios that have special activities for children ages 5-10.
WHEN: Noon – 6:00 p.m.
October 7-8; October 14-15
THE OPEN STUDIOS MISSION:
To provide an educational opportunity for the community to gain a broader understanding and appreciation of the visual arts through the personal experience of meeting artists in their private studios and other forums
