Tucked away in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, you will find Mountain View. A community of 2,900 people whose economy primarily stems from tourism related to being the ‘Folk Capital of the World’. They strive to uphold traditions of folk music and culture that were common in days gone by.
One of the facets of Mountain View and the surrounding area is the artists and artisans that call this part of Arkansas home. Once a year, participating private studios open their doors for a special event. While it is rare in this area, it is more common and known in larger communities and cities as ‘art walks’. This ‘art walk’ is by vehicle and is recognized by its title “Off The Beaten Path Studio Tour”.
This is a unique way to admire and enjoy not only the local talents, but to discover the mountains, backroads, valleys, and nature that endears so many to this area.
“Off The Beaten Path Studio Tour” will take place in 2021 on September 17, 18, and 19. This will be their 20th anniversary.
