Welcome to the 13th Annual Gateway Open Studios Tour! The event will take place on Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 12-5pm.
Our community, the Gateway Arts District, is home to hundreds of artists representing every artistic medium. On this self-guided tour, you are invited to visit over 100 participating studios, galleries, and other cultural venues for a behind-the-scenes experience of the workshops and creative places in our neighborhood.
Along the tour, from Mount Rainier to Hyattsville, you will discover live art demonstrations, music, performances, glassworks, sculptures, painting, and so much more! All ages are welcome, and since there is SO much to do, we recommend you look ahead and plan your tour route in advance.
All participating studios will be open from 12-5pm.
