The San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour was started in 1991 with the artists intention of opening their studios to the public for a weekend on a self-guided tour route. The artists' goal is to show friends and neighbors their unique lifestyles, tools of the trade, and the artistic process from the conception of an idea to a finished work of art. Studio Tour in June continues to be a popular event for residents and visitors to the island. Many studios will be hosting guest artists in their otherwise solitary work spaces. There will be artist demonstrations and door prizes at each studio.

Today the San Juan Islands Sculpture Park has evolved to offer its visitors a quality experience of nature and art working in harmony. The art you see during your visit may not be the same from month to month. Art is rotated as new pieces become available, as existing pieces are sold and as pieces rotate out of the park after a two-year display.
