About

22 studios. 32 artisans.

In addition to the T.C. Steele State Historic Site, twenty-one working artists’ studios will welcome visitors every day in October. Thirty-two juried artisans, a true representation of the arts in Brown County, will share a special glimpse into the lives of working artists and craftsmen.

The Back Roads of Brown County Studio Tour is a free, self-guided event designed to showcase the arts and crafts created in the present-day “Art Colony of the Midwest.”

Watch artwork take shape before your eyes, with artists and craftsmen demonstrating daily. Talk with artists and explore the spaces that inspire them. At some studios, you might even be able to take part in the creation. Educational and designed to broaden public understanding of the arts, the tour is an art celebration for the whole family.

This is a unique opportunity to meet artists doing what they love and to purchase artwork directly from those who made it. Collectors will relish the selection of new work available especially for this event.
