Santa Cruz Open Studios Art Tour 2013

If you like art, and you enjoy exploring Santa Cruz, then you simply can’t beat Open Studios.

It’s shocking how many amazing artists live in our community, and Open studios is the premiere way to see the best art that Santa Cruz County has to offer. Here are some resources to help you get the most out of your Open Studios experience this year:

Pro Tip:

The guide and app are great resources to help you plan your Open Studios adventure, but when it comes to picking the artists to see, nothing beats going to the Preview Exhibit at the Santa Cruz Art League.

All 300+ artists have one piece on display at the exhibit. Seeing them in-person instead of just relying on the small image for each artist in the guide or app makes it a lot easier to determine which studios to visit. There’s nothing like seeing the real thing to see how it resonates with you.
