Artists' Studio Tours
Your backstage pass into the Telluride art scene starts with this event. Discover how artists have carved out their working spaces, many in their homes.
Starting in 2009, the Open Studios tour is a program designed to bridge the gap between artists and art patrons. For one weekend, artists all over San Miguel County will open their doors to the public, for a unique view of the creative process and an amazing opportunity to meet with clients. The artists control pricing, curating, and ambience, and can gain exposure and opportunities for their unique art, build mailing lists, and sell their work. Art enthusiasts get a rare peek at what lies behind the studio doors, meeting emerging and established artists, and building collections, all while exploring the unique nature and colors of San Miguel County.
