The Kentucky Museum invites you to visit during the World's Greatest Studio Tour, being held this coming weekend - November 5 and 6, 2022 - in Bowling Green and surrounding areas.
The World’s Greatest Studio Tour is Southern Kentucky’s most exciting art event. The annual tour is designed to allow the public to meet our area’s leading artists, talk one-on-one, and see exciting new art works. There are many locations throughout Bowling Green and Warren County, KY. This unique and intimate opportunity creates free unlimited access to the artists, and a glimpse into their creative processes.
Signs will be posted to help you find the studios. There will also be maps available at your first stop and in area businesses.
