Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios


11 AM and 5 PM

“Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios is a free, self-guided tour that offers the public an opportunity to view the work and visit the studios of artists residing in our rustic foothill community. Artists working in a variety of media will open their home studios over the course of the weekend, inviting visitors to experience the creative process unique to each artist.”

Corey Stein Studio will be open to visitors along with many other local artists.

The 2017 Sunland-Tujunga Open Studios tour is dedicated to the memory of Tyrus Wong, a beloved resident of the Sunland community for more than half a century who passed away last December at the age of 106. Tyrus is best known for creating the look of Disney’s Bambi. He worked in the motion picture industry for decades and after his retirement he took up kite making and for years attracted many fans to the Santa Monica pier who came to watch him fly his elaborate kites.

Tyrus Wong’s extraordinary life was captured in TYRUS, the documentary by Pamela Tom. A special screening of the film will take place on Sunday, at 11 AM at Bolton Hall Museum.

The Accidental Arsonist!

The Accidental Arsonist series began with a newscast about a brushfire caused by a grasshopper. The insect was incinerated on an electric fence, sparking the blaze. The series includes a wildfire prevention awareness message through the before and after scenes of intricate beadwork set in wood carved in the shape of trees. Ironically, the flamable wooden sculpture is a locking match box and striker.
