For over 20 years artists have enjoyed the Citadel Art Studios as the premier place to create their art in San Jose. The Citadel is the largest artist community in the South Bay with over 70 studios. Located just off of 280 and 87 near San Jose State University the Citadel fosters both established and emerging artists. Originally a cannery, the industrial feel of the building gives artists the freedom to fully express their creative side. Being a Citadel artist provides the opportunity to work and mingle with other artists to experience and grow talents.
Our artists are involved in all types of work; painting, glass work, ceramics, digital arts, printmaking, sculpture, jewelry, mixed media, photography, metal working and woodworking. The studios are private, with high ceilings, natural light, and are accessible 24/7. Most studios are wired for Internet access, please contact Comcast for rates. There is free street parking out front.
