SF Open Studios' History
ArtSpan evolved from SF Open Studios (SFOS), begun in 1975 by a small group of enterprising artists who concurrently opened their studios to the public annually over one weekend to increase the accessibility of their work. Following the devastation of the 1989 earthquake, these artists created a strong organization to ensure SFOS would remain a San Francisco tradition, and in 1991, ArtSpan received its nonprofit, tax-exempt status. SFOS has grown exponentially, spanning four weekends, with over 800 participating artists and 100,000+ visitors.*
