ROCHESTER, Minn. - Artists are coming out of hiding, otherwise known as their studios, to display their work for the weekend. 

It was all for Rochester's Hiding Artists Tour where people get to drive around the city to different locations where artists display their pieces. 

Cathy Shaw is an artist in Rochester and helped create the event. She said she hopes this weekend helps people discover the local art scene and helps the art community create more of an identity in Rochester. 

"We're not in competition with each other. We're a community of artists that need to support each other and help each other grow," she said. 

This is the second year of the weekend tour with about 30 artists participating in this year's event. While the weekend may be over, people can still support local artists by attending gallery openings in the city. 

"If you find somebody that you really like the work that they do, find something to buy or commission them to build something for you that's special," Shaw suggested.
