“The Tour des Arts remains in the vanguard of the growing list of cultural attractions which make our Township a rich reservoir of artistic awareness and has become a popular fall weekend event for the community, visitors from all over the region as well as neighboring Pennsylvania and New York,” shared event organizer Sean Mannix.

The self-guided tour begins at the Hopewell Train Station, 2 Railroad Place, where visitors will see a sampling of all the artists and pick up a map to visit individual studios, galleries and workshops in and around Hopewell Borough. Map and list are also included below.

This year, artists include sculptures, goldsmiths, photographers, musicians, a performance artist, wood turners, painters, filmmakers, a metallurgist, and a collagist.
