Stutz artists Will Open Their Studios on August 4, 2017

Evening (5:00 PM - 9:00 PM)


Enjoy the creative energy! Open Studios at the Stutz resumes in August. First Friday Open Studios offer the visitor a perfect opportunity to learn more about the creative process. Explore the historic Stutz building and watch the artists at work.

Artists who participate in the annual Stutz Artists Association Open House typically stand in pristine studios and show off their work. But during first Friday Open Studios, visitors get to see what the artists' studios look like the other 363 days of the year. We hope you'll consider joining the Stutz artists as they host open studios in the evening on this first Friday of the month in conjunction with the Indianapolis Downtown Artists & Dealers Association's (IDADA) monthly First Friday gallery tour.

The event is free.
