The Annual Maui Open Studios Event is the first island-wide event of its kind in Hawaii. It spans over 4 weekends in February every year and consists of an Opening Celebration and Preview Exhibition, 3 weekends of artist open studios, and other satellite concerts and art exhibitions throughout the month. The inaugural Maui Open Studios Event took place in February of 2011 and included 111 registered artists at over 90 venues island wide.

MOS is a unique, vibrant event modeled after a very successful concept and tradition that has been enjoyed by the public for free throughout California and other art-appreciating states across the country for many decades.

After recognizing that Hawaii has no such event like this to promote and support its abundance of talented artists, we began putting plans in place to produce a similar event on the beautiful island of Maui, where so many gifted and talented artists reside, visit, create and find inspirations for their art, crafts and other wonderful creations.

Artists are encouraged to do live demonstrations, serve refreshments, talk story about their art, sell their work, connect with their visitors and create unique exhibition spaces for the public to enjoy.

The public, both local and tourist alike, will have a very unique opportunity year after year to experience the creativity that the art community on Maui has to offer. It is a very special event for both the artists and art-collectors alike.

This entire event is free for the public. All are welcome.

Artists must pay a registration fee to be included as a participant in the event. All artists working in any visual medium are welcome.

Grab a copy of our MOS Guidebook at our Opening Celebration/Preview Exhibition, or at one of our MOS Guidebook Pickup Locations or use our convenient online artist directory to map out your tours and away you go! Preview the artist's work prior to your self-guided tour either at our Opening Celebration/Preview Exhibition, through our website, or the artist's own website. Decide which studios you'd like to visit and then print a Mapquest/Google map (to be added closer to the event) from the links in the artist directory on this website or for general directions see our maps in MOS Guidebook. If you have GPS, even better! Whichever way you decide to plan your tours, we highly encourage you to have your own Maui road map with you in your cars.

Thanks for being here and we hope to see you on Maui in February, 2012!
