Open Studios is free and offers self-guided and guided tours. The self-guided tour is an open format that has proven to be an ideal way to encourage dialogue between artists and enthusiasts allowing visitors to gain firsthand knowledge about the creative process. Additionally a number of local curators and artists will lead guided tours to select studios during the Open Studios weekend. The guided tours are on a first-come, first-serve basis and will help familiarize participants with the works in a conversational setting.
These free guided tours must be reserved in advance. To reserve a tour and to download our map, visit the MCA website (www.midcityartists.com).
MCA studios remain nestled among the new condos, trendy shops and restaurants, proving that artists find ways to make space for their creativity.
