About this Event

Registration will open Thursday, October 10 at 1pm EST!

Click TICKETS to find your HOST and reserve your spot.

AI-AP is very excited to announce that we are reviving the Studio Visits that had been the heart of our Graphic Arts Weekend event from long ago (hello 1980s and 1990s).

The visits will take place during Illustration Week, November 7-8th in conjunction with AI-AP's The PARTY, our annual launch event (now in its 25th year!) that will celebrate the publication of the American Photography 35 and American Illustration 38 books; the Latin American Fotografía Ilustración 8 exhibit; the Int’l Motion Art Award 7 show; and the American Photography OPEN grand prize winner.

The fondly remembered Studio Visits bring creatives together for intimate group gatherings in art departments at magazines, advertising agencies, book publishers and animation studios, hosted by top creative directors and designers.

Check out the roster of over 20 Hosts below and make plans to be here, in person, face-to-face with creatives who commision photography and illustration. New, and possibly life-long collaborators and friends await!

Each one-hour group visit is $25. Register for 3 visits and automatically get one FREE ticket to The PARTY!

Space in each Studio Visit is limited and spots will probably sell out fast, so don't dealy.

Select the TICKET for each host you want to meet. Instructions and studio address will be provided to registrered attendees by email in November. Pre-registration required for all vistis.

Registration will open Thursday, October 10 at 1pm EST!
