Hurowitz, Sharon Coplan, (author.). Benchley, Amanda, (author.). Kelbaugh, Casey, (photographer.).


Open Studio' invites you into the private studios of seventeen of the most celebrated contemporary artists as they draw, paint, sculpt, or design an original project for readers to recreate at home. Join George Condo as he creates a paint-by-numbers portrait, William Wegman as he watercolors whimsical scenes of his beloved Weimaraners, and Mickalene Thomas as she makes an artist's book out of collage. 'Open Studio' demystifies the studio practice through the fun, accessible format of D.I.Y., leading you step-by-step through each artist's project. Eight inserts specially designed by the artists for completing their projects - from stencils to cut-outs - are also included. The result is sure to inspire people everywhere to blaze their own creative trails. Participating artists include: Marina Abramovic, George Condo, Will Cotton, John Currin, Thomas Demand, Rachel Feinstein, The Haas Brothers, Alex Israel, Rashid Johnson, KAWS, Maya Lin, Julie Mehretu, Wangechi Mutu, Mickalene Thomas, Sarah Sze, William Wegman, and Lawrence Weiner.
