Durango Open Studios is a tour of working art spaces throughout the community.  Promoting local arts with a connected base and growing audience for contemporary and traditional culture, it is an educational community event.  Open to artists of all media and form residing and creating locally, we focus on the visual arts.  This year, Durango Open Studios is excited to be working with students and supplementing the event Map and Catalogue/Guide with scheduled bike and foot tours.
