Open Studio Weekend (OSW) is a partnership of LVA and the University of Louisville Hite Art Institute to raise funds for LVA's signature program, Children's Fine Art Classes, and the Hite Art Institute's Mary Spencer Nay Scholarship programs.
One weekend each year, artists from all over Louisville open their doors for Open Studio Weekend!
This innovative weekend of fundraising events is in its fifth year, having replaced the partnership's annual art auction event of 47 years. The goal of this endeavor is to deepen our relationship with the community while simultaneously supporting local talented artists. OSW expands cultural and economic opportunities for artists and art lovers alike.
This event is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who appreciates art - from enthusiasts to collectors - to see artists at work, get a glimpse into the process of making art, and in some cases, take advantage of studio sales. It's such an amazing chance to see the behind-the-scenes world of your favorite artists, as well as new artists that will quickly become your favorites!
