SF Open STUDIOS 2020 schedule:

For 45 years, ArtSpan has championed the city’s creative class, including supporting artists through economic hard times. This year will be no exception. Our organization understands the crucial role our Open Studios program plays in fostering connections between local artists and the San Francisco-Bay Area Community. At present, our staff, Open Studios Committee, and Board are all collaborating to reimagine SFOS 2020 to meet the immediate needs of artists during this time of social distancing. This is an opportunity for our organization to examine a plethora of digital platforms to create a robust online Open Studios experience with the hope and anticipation that as social restrictions ease in-person studio visits can resume.

We will make a formal announcement once the program has been updated. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The ArtSpan Team
