Virtual Crawl

This year, we are excited to be offering you even more ways to connect with Eastside Culture Crawl artists directly from their studios. Whether virtually, or by in-person studio visits, this year’s engagement expands your experience with our artists while keeping everyone’s safety at the forefront.

HOW IS THE FESTIVAL GOING TO WORK THIS YEAR?

Artists will be opening their studios for two weekends this year, in-person or online, or a combination of both.

NOVEMBER 12-14
Preview weekend by appointment only.
Book A Visit!

NOVEMBER 18-21
Open studio festival weekend

All in-person visits will be operated under current public health guidelines. Studios may also be open online for 360 studio tours, live streaming, or live chat through our website during both weekends. You can search by platform (virtual or in-person) or search by artists/medium/building here to find out who is participating via which platforms and when.

WHAT ARE YOUR SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR THE FESTIVAL?

You can find our Safety Guidelines for attendees here.

HOW WILL THE VIRTUAL PLATFORMS WORK?

There are three main virtual ways to engage directly with our artists this year: virtual studio tours, live stream broadcasts, and live chats. These features are available through individual artist profile pages, which you can find via our Artists page

We are offering additional virtual programming from November 8-21, which includes artist demos, our Talking Art series, and our Moving Art film and video series. All event listings can be found on our Events page.

HOW WILL THE IN-PERSON STUDIO VISITS WORK?

Preview weekend by appointment only.
