Light refreshments were served and easels stacked at the back of the room, as artists and professors alike opened their studios and classrooms last Saturday to the Fort Collins and CSU communities.

It was the first time in over a decade that the art and art history department at Colorado State University has held an open house, a grand opportunity to see the work being produced daily on campus.

Each room featured a different class or department’s work hung on the walls, with the fibers department holding an outdoor indigo dyeing workshop, at no charge to participants.

The graduate students had the honor of their own group show, all the while engaging with the visitors throughout the two hour event. Some undergraduates where present as well, although all studios where open to the public.
