Fargo STUDIO CRAWL
The Studio Crawl was established in 2004 to develop an awareness and appreciation for the quality and diversity of visual arts in the region. During the two-day event, the public is given a chance to go behind the scenes of a working artist’s studio and exposed to dynamic educational experiences that demystify art’s “making” process.
Thirty-two studios will be open for visitation during this year’s crawl. Admission to all studios is free.
