Starting this Saturday, every weekend in October you’ll have the chance to visit 800 SF artist studios from the Mission to the Marina — all for free.

It’s the 36th year of ArtSpan’s SF Open Studios, a month-long event showcasing local art folks in their natural habitat. SOMArts has the official ArtLaunch preview party Thursday night with 400 artworks for sale and an open bar (we know that’s why you’re going; we won’t tell).

Weekend 1 kicks off in the Mission, Noe Valley, Bernal Heights, Castro and Excelsior from 11 am – 6 pm.
