Over fourty Essex studios will be open throughout the two story building with a lower level, for behind-the-scenes tours of the artist's workspaces. It's a great opportunity to meet the artists and find meaningful unique holiday gifts. The Essex Studios Art Walk committee has selected even more talented guest artists to participate by displaying their work in the building’s hallways. Patrons can participate in the People's Choice Art Contest, eat a meal from the irresistible taco truck, enjoy the local musicians playing throughout the building, and get some great desserts and coffee in the main lobby. Parking is free.
