Every July, RCP teams with the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to help showcase local artists by previewing the Annual City-Wide Open Studios. The fun starts on Tuesday, 7/21 at the Contemporary where you will have the opportunity to interact with participating artists and view samples of their work. Then that weekend (7/25 – 7/26), the artists are inviting you to visit the spaces where they work. Over 100 artists are participating this year so plan your routes well to see as many as possible. Finally on Sunday, make your last stop The Royale for a “starving artist” BBQ. Organized tours and bike rides are planned so check out http://openstudiosonline.org/ for more info and to get a copy of the map.
