The picturesque beauty of Long Beach Island has inspired a growing cultural community of talented local artists. The LBI Open Studio Tour will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 22nd and 23rd, from 10am-4pm. The Long Beach Foundation of the Arts and Sciences invites you to experience this thriving community of local artists by visiting them in their own private and public studios during the LBI Artist Open Studio Tour. The LBI Artist Open Studio Tour supports and promotes local artists who work and exhibit on LBI, in order to strengthen the growing cultural community on Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
The LBI Artist Open Studio Tour is a unique opportunity for residents and visitors to learn about the creative process of an artist and buy local art. The tour is self-guided and can be done by foot, bike, or car. Look for the green lawn signs along the path for each studio. A map of the tour can be picked up at the Long Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences the week of the tour.
Lydia Owens, Membership and Events Coordinator at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, has been working closely with the artists of the studio tour. Lydia is excited for the event and says that, “The Artist Open Studio Tour is an excellent opportunity for visitors of Long Beach Island to get an inside look of how artists work in their own personal spaces and environment. Everyone can participate in this free self-guided tour to interact, experience and support the local arts, and even explore their own skills in different mediums during artist demonstrations.”
