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 artist studio tour we organize every fall (the first 2 weekends of October), that showcase the space and work of local artists. 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 in Boulder in the places where they live and play, the Public Art Program, which pairs local artists with neighborhoods to co-concieve a piece of art that will live in their community and tell their story, and the Open Studios Gallery @ Rembrandt Yard, dedicated to exhibiting the visual art of local artists. In 2016/2017 we are also executing a huge community Paint-By-Number mural, for which we hope to get as much community participation as possible, including young and old, individuals and businesses to help paint a 35’x50′ mural on the side of the Colorado Building on Downtown Boulder for all to enjoy.
