What: Mid City Artists (MCA) has teamed up with four local curators, Laura Roulet, Sondra Arkin, Judy Sherman and Blair Murphy, to lead free tours of open studios. These tours give participants a unique opportunity to visit artist studios with an art expert. Curators know that the best way to break down barriers when putting together an exhibition or collection is to conduct a studio visit. Each curator will visit 4-6 studios in about two hours giving participants insight into the curator and artist creative process.
MCA has made it even easier for folks to tour on their own by creating a mobile app. Download our new app and tour 25+ working art studios, in and around Mid City. Visitors can hop from one studio to another within vibrant Mid City and experience an expansive offering of art and culture by the city’s most-talented and creative artists.

When: May 18th and 19th 12PM-5PM*
