The LB Open Studio Tour is a free, self-guided tour of local artist studios. This event is open to the public for three weekends in celebration of Long Beach’s Arts Month. There is no ticket to buy; all you need is the tour map that can be found around town at local businesses, coffee houses, and merchants, or downloaded from the website, LBopenstudiotour.com. The tour website includes the map of studio locations, as well as profiles of the participating artists. The studios are marked with lawn signs bearing the LB Open Studio Tour logo. Some studios will offer live music and light refreshments. Click on the music schedule on the website for details.
New this year, the tour is extended over three separate weekends. The studios west of Cherry Avenue will be open October 13 & 14, the studios east of Cherry Avenue will be open October 20 & 21. The weekend of October 27 & 28 is for artists who opt to open their studios for a second time. Studios are open noon to 5 p.m. each weekend. Plan to visit up to 45 studios and over 60 artists on this year’s tour!
