The mission of Open Studios is to advance and enrich the visual arts and promote the role of artists in the Boulder community.

Open Studios is best known for the annual Open Studios Tour, a free, all-ages, self-guided tour of visual artists’ working studios throughout Boulder County. In addition to the Tour, Open Studios manages several other programs, including EdLinks, which brings professional artists into area schools to share their experience and process; the Mobile Art Lab, which brings art instruction and inspiration directly to underserved populations throughout Boulder County in the places where they live and play; the Open Studios Membership Program, providing training and opportunities like galleries and exhibits to help artists to develop markets and build their businesses; POP! Galleries, temporary galleries of Members’ artwork that enhance and enliven vacant commercial buildings while providing selling venues for artists; Boulder County Plein Air Festival, an early summer event that brings juried plein air artists from around the country to create art that is reflective of and inspired by the rural and urban scenery of Boulder County; and the Virginia Wood Fund for Artists in Need, providing emergency micro grants for artists in crisis.
