SF OPEN STUDIOS - FIVE WEEKENDS IN 2017!

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, 2016, marked the 41st Anniversary of SF Open Studios, and we are planning to continue strong for SF Open Studios 2017.  To create the best experience for everyone across the city, this year we have extended the event to include 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 dialogue 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.
