The safety of Studios on the Park’s visitors, volunteers, artists, staff, and exhibits is of the highest importance. As the premier open studio environment of its kind in California, we work hard every day to ensure the preservation of the works of art and interactive nature of our facility for the enjoyment of generations to come. We ask that when you choose to visit Studios that you help us to make sure our visitors and our artwork remain safe.
