Bluff Country Studio Art Tour Mission Statement

The Bluff Country Studio Art Tour is committed solely to the production of its spring studio tour. The group’s mission is threefold –

1) to create an opportunity for the area residents and visitors to experience the wide range of high quality art that is created in our region.   During the event, artists provide tours of their studios, explain the process of making their art, answer questions and do live demonstrations throughout the weekend

2) to promote the Bluff Country’s artist community as an attraction for cultural tourism.  Southeastern Minnesota is known for many of its attractions and this event highlights our vibrant community of artists.

3) to increase the audience and customer base for the diverse fine art and fine craft created in Southeastern Minnesota.  Many award winning artists call this area home and only open their studios once a year during this event.
