NYC Open Studios
NYC Open Studios (http://www.nycopenstudios.org, or http://www.isupportart.org) featured a city-wide open studios tour in October 2005. This looks to be an annual arts event.

The Open Studios Tour:

Visit NYC artists in their studios throughout the 5 boroughs
October 2005 11AM - 6PM Saturdays + Sundays

1 Borough Each Weekend:
Manhattan Oct. 1-2
Queens Oct. 8-9
The Bronx Oct. 15-16
Brooklyn Oct. 22-23
Staten Island Oct. 29-30

Destined to become the world's largest open studios program,
NYC Citywide Open Studios premiers the entire month of October 2005.

Over 500 New York City artists, in all five boroughs, invite you to visit their studios. It's your backstage pass to the cutting edge of NYC art. A celebration of one of the city's greatest cultural assets - its unparalleled population of artists. The event is free to the public and you are invited to explore participating artists' studios every weekend in October, one borough each weekend beginning with Manhattan (Oct. 1-2) and ending with Staten Island (Oct. 29-30) This grass-roots event offers you the opportunity to meet artists at all stages of their careers, tour their studios, learn about their process and purchase their original art.
