Every October, Boise’s Original Artist’s Open Studios Weekend Tour provides an opportunity to visit local artists’ studios, interact with them and purchase their work directly.

BOSCO, a nonprofit established 16 years ago, bridges the gap between the artists who live and work in our community and those of us who appreciate them.

This year’s tours will take place October 3rd – 4th and October 10th – 11th. In addition to in-studio visits, you can also watch virtual video tours and Facebook Live tours. To learn more, visit their Facebook and Instagram pages, or click on their web site.

The Pettitt Group is thrilled to continue supporting local artists and local arts-based nonprofits.

Each year the Pettitt Group chooses 12 nonprofit arts organizations to support. We donate $1,000 to one of the groups every month during the year.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, more of our “performance” organizations are transitioning to online, interactive programs. And, sadly, not all of them have been able to continue their public programs in this forum.

Here is a July calendar of events that are scheduled to take place. We are excited that these organizations can share their collective missions with our community despite necessary social distancing. (Disclaimer: DO confirm that dates and locations haven’t been further affected.)
