About the Tour
The Bloomington Open Studios Tour is an artist-run event showcasing the rich diversity of local visual art talent in the area. You can see artists working in their own studios (and in some cases visiting at studios of their friends). The earlier Bloomington Open Studios Tours were quite successful for artists and patrons alike. Last year was the largest tour yet with 45 participating area artists.
It's a completely free, completely open-ended, 2-day event on October 21st and 22nd, 2017. You drive, walk or bike around from one studio to another seeing the artists and their work.
With funds provided by the artists, sponsors, and granting organizations, we print up an attractive map/brochure and provide this website with extensive information, images and a mobile-friendly studio map and bike route. The tour provides a great introduction/overview of visual arts in Bloomington, and the opportunity to see and buy local works.
Mark your calendar for October 21st and 22nd, 2017, visit our Facebook page for additional updates – and tell your friends.
