Open Studio Weekend is a landmark event when artists across the Louisville Metro area open their work spaces to the public. A prime opportunity for fans, collectors, fellow artists, or those just curious about Louisville’s bustling art scene to get behind-the-scenes views of creative processes, learn about new artists in the area, and take advantage of studio sales where available. For participating artists, it’s a wonderful way to connect with new audiences, inspire young visitors, and share deeper significance of how and why they make what they make. Louisville Visual Art and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute partner to develop the roster of artists and create a comprehensive Studio Directory & Artist Guide that maps studio locations and provides information on all participants. The Directory serves as a ticket to OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND, and is prized in the community as an invaluable guide to Louisville’s art scene.
Since 2013, Louisville Visual Art and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute have invited the public to step inside dozens of artists’ work spaces across the Metro and get a glimpse into their creative process. This Open Studio Weekend partnership raises funds for LVA’s Children’s Fine Art Classes and the Hite Art Institute’s Mary Spencer Nay Scholarship.
