2 Weekends – 4 Days to EXPLORE
Half the artists participate the first weekend, the other half participate on the second weekend. This is a free event for the whole family.

BOSCO’s annual signature event has expanded over the years. The Open Studios Tour provides an opportunity for the public to meet local artists in their studios, learn about who the artist is and what inspires them, and to experience their creative process in the context in which it is created.

To visit an artist’s studio is to see the artist’s mind at work. Learn about the materials they use, find out what inspires them and see how both shape the resulting artwork.

The tour includes an art giveaway, at each studio visited a stamp is provided, 10 stamps fill the Passport. Each completed Passport is entered in a drawing for a chance to win art.

Community Approach

Boise Open Studios is more than an annual art event. Our members are local professional artists who pride themselves in giving back to our community. As an organization, BOSCO strives to educate the public about the creative process and what it takes to be a working artist.

01

As teachers

Many members generously give back to the community by teaching their creative process to both adults and the youth through workshops, private lessons, and educators for both Universities and K-12 schools.

02

As contributors

Numerous members contribute to the local art community by creating public art, and by working with their communities to create art-based events.

03

As mentors

Currently, BOSCO is working with the local universities to create an internship program, where graduating and grad students have the opportunity to be paired up with and mentored by a BOSCO artist.
