Art Span

For four weekends in October, local San Francisco visual artists open their studios to public perusal. Explore San Francisco's artist's studios with a map in hand, and venture across neighborhoods to see works in progress, discuss inspiration first hand with artists and contemplate quitting that day job for a life of art production. ArtSpan produces the month-long event and inquiries about particular artists or to join the roster should be directed to ArtSpan.

ArtSpan is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building connections within San Francisco's visual arts community and between artists and the general public.

ArtSpan produces San Francisco Open Studios and Art for City Youth, publishes sf open studios: the guide, organizes workshops to help artists with their professional development, and holds Selections, a biennial juried art exhibition. - sfopenstudios.com
