THE STUDIO TOUR is our flagship event, created in 1995. The Tour is an exciting 3-weekends in October event with a festival-like atmosphere. In recent years, the Tour has attracted approximately 8,000 patrons from our region and beyond. These patrons visit multiple studios, meet artists, buy art, learn about their art-making practices and form lasting relationships with the artists.


This year, create your own Tour of Artists' Studios on the date of your choice - Oct 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, noon to 5 pm. Use the Artist Catalog to start lining up the studios you would like to visit. Click "Tour Artists" and other filters to narrow down your choices. Browse various Artist Pages to learn more about them, their art and location. Use the interactive Map of Studios as another way to locate the artists you want to visit during the Tour. Tour Artist online listings include their Studio Number and their Open Weekends, and their studios will be marked with yellow Open Studios Tour yard signs. Note, not all Tour Artists are open all three weekends. Use this Directory to find out which weekends each Artist is open.

The 2021 TOUR PREVIEW EXHIBIT at The Museum of Boulder (Broadway and Pine St) will feature one piece from each Tour Artist, and is another great way to plan who you want to visit on your Tour. The Museum is open every day 9 - 5 except for Tuesdays. Open until 8 pm on Wednesdays. 

The 2021 printed STUDIO TOUR MAP will also be available Friday, Oct 1! Pick one up at the POP! Gallery (1200 Pearl St), the Museum of Boulder or the Boulder Chamber of Commerce.
