CITYWIDE OPEN STUDIOS
is canceled for 2020
At the end of June, we were optimistic about holding Vallejo Open Studios 2020, a citywide event. Coronavirus cases were on the downswing and we optimistically expected that trend to continue. Unfortunately it did not, and sadly, cases are on the rise once again.
We cannot, in good conscience, encourage anyone to apply to participate in an event that might be restricted when November rolls around. In addition, it would be irresponsible of us to use VOS funds to begin creating the marketing materials that support the event without being sure it could indeed take place.
Therefore, we will take 2020 off, and hope to see you all in 2021…safe and healthy. We’ll use this time to brainstorm new ideas to keep art alive.
To our artists, we’d like to say stay safe and continue creating.
To those of you who support the arts, we wish you and your families good health and we look forward to seeing you in 2021 to share our creativity with you.

to speak a few reasonable words.”
