Presented annually by Verge Center, Sac Open Studios is a free, self-guided studio tour which is open to any artist in Sacramento County and part of Yolo County. In 2019, it attracted over 30,000 visitors and featured more than 250 emerging, mid-career and established artists in their homes and studios.
Participating artists open their art studios to the public during two weekends in September, and while plenty of the participating artists have traditional work spaces in studio facilities, many artists open their home studios or utilize other spaces to display their art during the tour.
