This two-day event celebrates the 25th year that the Stutz Artists have welcomed guests to the studios where they create their art all year long. Both the artists and the building will be decked out in silver to celebrate the anniversary. Each artist is creating a work of art inspired by silver to be featured in their studio. Artists will offer paintings, photography, furniture, sculpture, jewelry and more for purchase.
Guests have an opportunity to see creative spaces in this historic car factory, experience the thriving Stutz art community, enjoy live music, make their own art, take a selfie in a Stutz automobile and tour the turn-of-the-century car factory turned business and arts center. On Saturday, artists will demonstrate their art and children can participate in a scavenger hunt.
