The Columbia Open Studios Guide

Would you like for thousands of people visiting Midlands art studios to see your business in close to 50,000 copies of our Columbia Open Studios guide?

Take advantage of this low-cost opportunity to entice people to visit your restaurant, bar or cafe during the annual Columbia Open Studios tour.

The 2013 guide is now closed for new businesses, but you are welcome to sign up for 2014 now!



During these two weekend days, people will drive around Richland and Lexington counties visiting our local artists. As they crisscross our two-county area, they will use the Columbia Open Studios 2013 program guide and maps as they find their way.

Close to 50,000 copies of the 16-24-page, color guidebook will be distributed in the Free Times weekly newspaper on March 20, 2013, and through culture and hospitality hubs in NC, SC, and GA in the weeks preceding the event.

This guide includes information about the artists, as well as, maps to their studios. This year, we are reserving a set number of “Neighborhood Eating Establishment Listing” slots to correspond with neighborhoods where participating artists are located.  For $150, your restaurant can be listed on the map so visitors will be enticed to plan their visit around breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and food breaks!

Open Studios visitors get hungry and thirsty throughout the two-day, self-guided tour, and they’re already in the mood to browse and shop! Artists’ studios saw a 75% growth from 4,000 visits in 2011 to 10,000 visits during the 2012 event and we expect even more this year.

Neighborhood Eating Establishment Listings are $150 and will be placed prominently on the corresponding area page.

If you prefer, please contact Debi Schadel at or 803-348-8861 or mail your check payable to 701 CCA, 701 Whaley Street, c/o Studio 210, Columbia, SC 29201.
