Our interactive exhibit of art and innovation from more than 45 artists, makers and entrepreneurs returns this May and will feature everything from painting, illustration, and photography to large scale sculpture, furniture, glass, art cars, costumery and fire.

More than just open studios, Art + Industry offers a behind-the-scenes look at the East Bay's largest home to artists and innovators. We'll be featuring live demonstrations and talks from the artists who call American Steel Studios home. Come see why we're called "an industrial haven for artists" by californiareport.org.

 Our schedule includes:
- An indoor/outdoor exhibition of artwork and performance from May 10–18 filling more than 10,000 square feet of exhibition space
- Open studios on May 10–11
- A day of interactive programs, demonstrations, facility and studio tours, performances, and artist talks on May 10
 
The exhibition
American Steel Studios the beating heart of West Oakland's small business boom, is an incubator for artists, architects, fabricators, inventors, and business leaders.

American Steel's oversized facility allows us to present member events on a scale that only museums can rival, and our tenant exhibition will fill more than 10,000 square feet of inside and outside gallery space, featuring painting, textiles, photography, printmaking, ceramics, large and small sculpture, furniture and installation, as well as fire performance and art cars from more than 45 studios and businesses.

Based on past exhibitions, we expect to draw roughly 1,500 visitors to American Steel for Art + Industry.
 
Not just open studios
On Saturday and Sunday May 10-11, our studios will be open to the public. To help give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at our artists and businesses, we have assembled a day-long schedule of guided tours, demonstrations, performances and artist talks. As the sun goes down, we'll light up the fire effects for an evening of fire sculpture, fire performance and art cars.
