How can I purchase a Tour Guide?

Purchasing a tour guide gives you preview information about a majority of the artists, how to contact them, and which artists welcome in-person Studio Visits. Purchase Tour Guides for $15 at the following locations:



Visit all year for artist updates of available artwork and in-person Studio Visit availability. With COVID-19 still active, we have adapted this year’s Open Studios Art Tour (OSAT) to accommodate required safety measures.

OSAT is an annual Butte County tradition. This event is produced solely by Chico Art Center (CAC) volunteers as our major fundraising project of the year. Your patronage pledges your commitment to arts and culture and helps make CAC’s programming possible all year.

Many thanks to our sponsor, Heithecker Financial and local businesses advertising in the Tour Guide and We hope you’ll support local artists and businesses with your patronage.


Instead of having the traditional tour for only two weekends, as we have in previous years, we encourage you to visit all year, from October 1, 2020 – July 31, 2021 for artist updates and Studio Visit availability.


It will be important to practice social distancing, use masks and hand sanitizer for both visitors and the artists while visiting Artist Studios. Artists may make special requests when scheduling appointments with visitors.
