The 100th Monkey Studio is a socially conscious small business owned and operated by two women. The 100th Monkey Studio will provide anyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation, a safe and affordable place to use art materials. We will support each artist in their unique journey of using art as a means of individual self expression. The 100th Monkey Studio will provide the community with art resources while also being a creative place to visit and view art. An open studio is a studio or work room that is open to all, where artistic or creative work can be viewed and created collaboratively. Artists and non-artists come together in the open studio to celebrate the social act of collaborating. An Open Studio is intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in a welcoming atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression. Open studios can be traced back to 17th century Paris where artists and other creative intellectuals gathered. Other art forms such as beat poetry can be traced back to originating in open studio settings. Post-WWII New York saw many open studios. One famous example, The Factory, was created by Andy Warhol.
