Bloomington Open Studios Tour

A free, self-guided tour of artist studios in Bloomington, Indiana

Tour artist studios
See artists work

The Bloomington Open Studios Tour is a collective of professional artists who open their studios to the general public for an exciting weekend in mid-October.

For this October’s tour we invite you to come in to our studio spaces, meet us personally and see our work; examine the materials and tools we use and watch demonstrations that show how we transform raw materials into finished works of art.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions about what inspires artists, to find out how your favorite artworks were made, and to purchase unique, local art.

  • Plan your own self-guided tour
  • Explore artist’s studios
  • See new artwork
  • Creative process revealed
  • See demonstrations
  • Collect artwork
  • Become inspired

Here are some of the participating artists and links to more of their work.

BOST continues its mission to strengthen connections among artists, the public, and tour supporters in our vibrant visual arts community.
