In 2020, the Hidden Studios Art Tour will be held on October 2, 3, and 4, 2020. This iconic fall event has been held since 2004 and strives to create personal one-on-one opportunities to learn more about art and the artists who create it.
2. Self-Guided Tour is Going Virtual in 2020
Go behind the scenes in 7 working artist studios, and learn more about guest artists at each location. No need to grab a map, or your GPS. Arm yourself with a drink (and a snack) in your favorite comfy chair - and settle in for live artist demos and pre-filmed studio tours. Opportunities to interact with the artists will be available on Facebook, Instagram and Zoom.
3. Meet the Artists & Purchase a One-of-a-Kind Piece
The tour is free, but you won’t want to miss out on purchasing some of the artwork! Support central Wisconsin artists and bring their work into your home. Check out the Hidden Studios Art Tour 'Staying Connected' online marketplace, to browse works by all of the participating artists, and purchase a one-of-a-kind piece!
4. Art - in all Forms and Media - On Display
The event features the work of central Wisconsin artists, part of the close-knit artist community in the region.
