OUR NEXT Open Studios Event IS Friday, JULY 12TH

Tour the Fine Arts Building Studios and get inspired! Shop for art, books, musical instruments, classes, and more! We open our doors to the public from 5 to 9 on the evening of the second Friday of every month to connect with the community and share our work in a casual and relaxed setting. We recommend starting your tour by taking an elevator to the 10th floor, and then take the stairs down, stopping at each of the Open Studios for a unique cultural and architectural experience.
