Second Fridays Open Studios

Tour ten floors of this National Landmark Building-an historic artists’ haven since 1898

Fine Arts Building Studios is a collective made up of visual artists, musicians, performers, yoga and dance instructors as well as a unique bookstore located in the historic Fine Arts Building.

We open our doors to the public on the second Friday of every month. Connecting with the community, we share and discuss all aspects of our work in a casual and relaxed setting.
