Welcome to OpenStudios, a program that pairs empty storefronts with practicing local artists. The artists get a free studio for several months, and the building owner gets an animated, more attractive space that's easier to rent!
What makes your neighborhood unique? Maybe you live near the river, or next to a school, or by a park, or along the railroad tracks?

These are the sounds of Wichita, and we want to hear them too.
