In the 1960s Andy Warhol started producing art in his studio, which he dubbed The Factory. Despite all the licentiousness that films like Factory Girl would have you believe was the sole enterprise of the place, art was happening in that studio. Artists were inspired by their comrades to create and Warhol allowed some members of the public to view his process.
This weekend, you'll have the chance to watch some Boise artists in their own studios. Members of the Boise Open Studios Collective will open their doors so the public can see and experience artists creating in a multitude of media, including assemblage, pottery, oil and acrylic painting, photography, glass and sculpture. More than 25 artists will open their studios during the event. For more info on the artists or for a guide and map to the studios visit boiseopenstudios.com.
