In celebration of the 10th annual Get Behind the Arts Studio Tour 2020 – Racine and Kenosha, we have something NEW planned for the Preview Party. We are grateful to the University of Wisconsin-Parkside for hosting the art party of the year at the crossroads of Racine and Kenosha!

The GBTA Preview Party kicks off the Studio Tour, an incredible 3-Day arts event. It’s your chance to preview the art made by working artists, meet the artists, and mark your tour maps for must-see studio visit selections. Plus, the entertainment, food, and demos are a blast!

The 2020 Entertainment Lineup is Presented by Family Power Music and BONK! Performance Series!
