The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program is hosting its annual event, Open Studios 2016, on October 20 – 22 with an opening reception on Thursday October 20. EFA Open Studios is free and open to the public.

With a vibrant and diverse community of over 70 artists with established studio practices and recognized careers, all are invited to come explore and interact with the EFA artist community in their studios. It is an opportunity to see the most recent works by our artists and gain meaningful insights into their practice. Visitors will be able to view artist studios on eight floors and engage directly with artists that work in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities. Rarely can curators, collectors, art dealers, and art enthusiasts see so many internationally recognized artists working under one roof in Manhattan.

Additionally, EFA Project Space and EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop will be hosting events at the EFA Center during Open Studios weekend. Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company sponsor refreshments at EFA Open Studios.
