The third full weekend each October, some of Wisconsin’s best-known artisans open their studios, allowing visitors a unique, behind-the-scenes view into how their work is created.
Known as the Fall Art Tour, each year it draws visitors from all over the country to artists’ studios tucked away in the scenic hills in and around Wisconsin’s art communities of Baraboo, Spring Green, Dodgeville, and our very own Mineral Point.
During the three-day tour, artists will be in their studios, demonstrating and selling their work. These artisans include painters, sculptors, potters, weavers, jewelers, woodworkers, mixed-media artists, and more.
Many of these studios are open only for this event, providing a unique opportunity to meet the artists and purchase their work. So join us on a drive through the autumn countryside during this once-a-year event that includes a rare glimpse into the restored breweries, one-room schoolhouses, and historic storefronts where some of Wisconsin’s best-known artists work.
Nice to hear that it’s co- sponsored by Wisconsin Public Radio too! One of the highlights of the autumn arts season.
