Open Studios

Open Studios is a long-running afternoon event that invites the Stanford community to explore the classrooms and studios of the McMurtry Building and Stanford Art Gallery, where works by undergraduate students are displayed.  This event offers an opportunity to see student work in the space it was created, and features drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and more. 

Open Studios takes place at the end of fall and winter quarters,  on the last day of classes. Classrooms and studios are located in both the McMurtry Building and Stanford Art Gallery.
