Open Studios Day is a bi-annual event at Angels Gate Cultural Center celebrating all of the creativity that
takes place throughout our campus; as well as the diverse and lively community that makes us so unique.
Over 50 Studio Artists will open their doors and welcome you to see what they create in their studios. The
