• Art studios in Paris to open to the public

    2010-11-11

    The Montmartre neighborhood in Paris is associated in many travelers minds with cobblestone streets, cozy cafes and a historical artistic community. Monet, van Gogh, Dali and other names are strongly associated with the district in the minds of many tourists.

    Yet while the neighborhood is known for its cultural charm, the artists themselves typically have little interaction with tourists and visitors to Montmartre. From November 19th to November 21 of this year, however, this will change as over 120 artists in 74 locations open their studios to the public, The New York Times reports. Visitors to Paris during this time can purchase a catalog with profiles of those participating in the event and a helpful street guide to find the location of their studios.

    Participants are, of course, hoping to sell their work, but are also happy to enlighten visitors about it, according to the news source.

    Mary Ann Beall, an artist that participated in organizing the event, said, "It’s a very sensible and genuine way to show your artwork and have immediate and sincere reactions from strangers."
