31st Annual Open Studio Tour

The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is proud to announce School 33 Art Center’s 31st annual Open Studio Tour! An annual citywide event, Open Studio Tour has brought together professional artists and the general public, giving collectors and art lovers the opportunity to visit the studios of visual artists. Traveling from throughout Maryland and the surrounding region to visit the studios of artists in Baltimore, visitors get a chance to meet the artist, see their work and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their working processes. 
New this year! Open Studio Tour will take place over two weekends:

Saturday, October 12-Sunday, October 13, 10am-6pm
Saturday, October 26-Sunday, October 27, 10am-6pm

Take this opportunity to share your work with the public and with other artists during this event!

School 33 Art Center is dedicated to providing opportunities for artists through exhibitions, art classes, workshops, a Studio Artist Program, and special events. School 33 Art Center is a program of the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts, Inc., and is supported in part by grants from the Mayor and the City Council of Baltimore, the Maryland State Arts Council, and through private contributions to School 33 Art Center.
