Verge Center for the Arts is excited to announce the 15th Annual Sac Open Studios event is transitioning to a virtual format with a dynamic and diverse variety of live online activities scheduled for September 9-13 and 17-20, 2020. Sac Open Studios is a free self-guided tour designed to showcase artists who live and work in the greater Sacramento region. The ever-evolving event is the region’s oldest, largest and most prestigious artist studio tour program that provides a platform for the community to connect with and support regional artists while making new discoveries along the way.
With 120 artists participating from throughout Sacramento County and the City of West Sacramento in 2020, the community can watch and/or engage in a variety of ways, including a Sac Open Studios kick-off event, interactive “Conversations with Artists” opportunities, various “Artist Livestreams” when the community can watch artistry in action, individual events offered by some of the participating artists, and more.
“While the format may be a bit different this year, significantly more people will now have the opportunity to discover the depth of amazing talent that exists in our artist and maker community,” said Liv Moe, Founding Director of Verge Center for the Arts. “This year, all that is needed is a computer or smartphone to engage, experience and enjoy a creative getaway live from the comfort of living rooms everywhere or from virtually anywhere.”
