One of the largest events of its kind, Artspace’s City-Wide Open Studios is in its 21st year. In the month-long festival 400+ artists from across Connecticut open their doors to the public to exhibit their work and offer a peek into the creative process.

City-Wide Open Studios takes place over multiple weekends in October.

  • Erector Square Weekend October 6 & 7: Erector Square acts as a hub of artistic activity in Fair Haven. A high concentration of artist studios—housed in a former Erector Set factory—make it an especially exciting place to be during Open Studios. Free and open to all.
  • Westville Weekend + Private Studios Weekend October 13 & 14: Artists in the Westville section of New Haven will open their doors as will artists in their studios across Greater New Haven. Artspace organizes bike tours and routes to help visitors see the breadth of art on display. Free and open to all.
  • Alternative Space Weekend October 26 – 28: Artists from across the state of Connecticut will take space at Yale West Campus (410 West Campus Drive, West Haven). This weekend also includes interactive commissioned projects and many site-specific installations. Free and open to all.

Each participating artist will show a work in our gallery space for the duration of the the festival.

All events are free and open to the public between none and 6 p.m. To learn more visit our City-Wide Open Studios website.
