2020 SVAT Passport

During the South Valley Art Tour a collection of artists from Tulare County, either North of Highway 198 or South of Highway 198 — both nationally recognized as well as aspiring greats — invite you into their personal workspaces for a behind-the-scenes tour.

Get to know the faces and places behind Tulare County’s best artwork! Broaden your art horizons and make personal connections with creative minds in your community!

Community members visiting the artist studios will need to acquire a SVAT Passport. This keepsake booklet provides all the information, maps and directions needed to access the studios and artists.

Formally known as The South Valley Artists’ Studio Tour, the South Valley Art Tour remains Tulare County’s widest-reaching art event of the year. Due to the tremendous growth of the South Valley Art Tour, we are now featuring the Southern and Northern regions of Tulare County on alternating years.
