Background Information

For the past 11 years, the Loveland Art Studio Tour has been a celebrated and competitive juried art show representing a wide variety of media. Tour dates occur two weekends in October, but the Museum has participated for the past several years, offering a preview exhibit of the tour.

The Museum’s preview exhibition is on view from September 12-October 18.  Tour dates are October 10-11 and October 17-18 and information for the tour can be found at www.lovelandstudiotour.com.

In 2020, all things including the tour, have been impacted by Covid-19, but the tour is finding safe and new ways to reach out to the community. This year, the Studio Tour will be handing out “Art Activity” bags, available for families to pick up at the Museum and the Museum’s Beet Education Center. These bags, donated by Stowers Orthodontics, are filled with a variety of art activities, carefully and safely put together by artists on the tour. Each activity will have detailed instructions, created by the artists, along with additional goodies from local sponsors. Art activity Bags are free and available on a first-come first-serve basis. Pick up dates and times are listed below. Please wear a mask or facial covering and be respectful of distancing measures at pick up.

The Museum’s Beet Education Center will also hold three artist-run workshops where kids and families can have assistance with the projects. Pre-registration will be required and workshops will have Covid-10 precautions in place and a limited amount of space to accommodate distancing.
