During the 701 CCA Columbia Open Studios weekend April 21-22, 2012, thousands of people ventured out for a free tour of 69 artists’ studios in the Greater Columbia area (including all of Richland and Lexington Counties), with maps and artist info in hand.

Visitors spent two full days hopping from studio to studio, with free admission for all.
