History and Mission of the Open Your Eyes Studio Tour:
Since 2010, the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council has selected groups of towns within its 25-town service area for the yearly studio tour event. Over the years, this event has drawn audiences from 14 states, with many visitors returning annually.
The aim of the Open Your Eyes Studio Tour is to give visitors a greater understanding of local artists' creative processes, and the spaces they work within.
2019 is the 10th Anniversary of the Open Your Eyes Studio Tour. The tour has come full circle since day one and returns to the artists’ spaces in the Winsted and New Hartford area.
