On Saturday, Oct. 10, the artists and makers of Camp Washington will be opening up their studio spaces and galleries from noon-4 p.m. for Made in Camp. 

More than 40 Camp community members are participating and visitors can "meet with artists in their studios, (enjoy) access to oft-hidden makers spaces and (watch) demonstrations by Camp Washington manufacturers," says a release.

This year, a guide and colored signs will help people locate different studios. Made in Camp maps are available at the American Sign Museum, Wave Pool, CampSITE Sculpture Park, Camp Washington Community Board and various studios.

"Primarily a walking event, many of the artists and sites will be setting up outside to allow for greater social distancing and safety this year due to the pandemic," reads a release. 

The release also says visitors will be able to have students from the Art Academy show them new artworks in the neighborhood, or stop by and take a swing at Swing House, watch makers bend neon at Neonworks, check out outdoor art at CampSITE, visit the Fringy bookshop, stop by The Welcome Project or head to Wave Pool's woodshop for demos. 

There will also be free COVID testing from UC Health outside of Wave Pool during the event.
