Welcome to the Spring Art Tour
June 1-3, 2018, 10am-5pm daily
Discover the magic! Explore the treasures that await you under magnificent wide open springtime skies. View the vistas, prairies, and gardens that inspire this area's artists. They will welcome you into their home, gallery, and farm studios. Be inspired as you watch them create woodwork, wheel thrown pottery, beautiful jewelry, supreme basketry, glass work, fine art paintings and much more. Wander through South Central Wisconsin as you tour the rarely seen Open Art Studios of Mount Horeb and surrounding areas. Connect the dots on our map and artist locations to create your own unique Spring Art Tour. Relish the ride!
Brochures for the tour will begin to be distributed early in the year of the tour. It includes a map of the artists' locations and examples of their artwork. In addition, links to other maps may become available on this website in the Spring prior to the event. If you would like to receive a brochure and be included on our annual mailing, please let us know.
