Passport to the Arts Celebration


Please join the Block Island Arts Council on Saturday October 7th, 2023 from 9:00am to 7:00pm for an inaugural, island-wide Open Studio event. A family-friendly, interactive day of arts exploration which will allow guests to meet dozens of Block Island artists from many different genres in over 30 venues across the island.

Passport to the Arts is a fun-filled, rain or shine arts celebration, which is free to all and will take our guests on an adventurous trip to a multitude of arts activities. Visitors will collect Passport Stamps at each venue they visit during the day. At the end of the day visitors will receive a free raffle ticket for every stamp they’ve collected. The raffle will be drawn on 9/24/23 and winners will be contacted. There will be a limit of 2 winning tickets per family in an effort to share the fun with everyone.

Participants can collect their schedule and map for the event and their Passports outside the BI Chamber of Commerce across from the ferry from 9:00am until 1:00pm, at the Farmer’s Market at Legion Park from 9:00am to 11:30am and at Champlin’s Resort’s Tent from 9:00am until 1:00pm.

At the end of your day, your passport stamps will be counted and raffle tickets distributed at Champlin’s until 4:30pm, at the Chamber of Commerce until 5:00pm and at the Spring Street Gallery until 7:00pm.
