Now in it's 30th year, Silicon Valley Open Studios, one of the major programs, was started by Liz Craft with the idea that art lovers and the general public could gain a better appreciation for the great art created in this region by visiting artists in their own private studios.


Our mission is to support and promote the visual arts as the most important ingredient of the unique and diverse society of the Bay Area.


We sponsor the visual arts by providing marketing support to emerging and professional artists. We sponsor programs that connect artists with social causes throughout the Bay Area.
