Returning for its second year, Art in the Open brings the action and intrigue of artists making their art directly to Philadelphia’s Schuylkill riverbanks for four days in June.
Free to all audiences, the city-wide event, June 9-12, celebrates the local landscape that serves as both inspiration for creating art and as an open-air studio to artists.
From Fairmount Water Works to Bartram’s Garden, Art in the Open will explore the natural beauty and urban character of the Schuylkill to inspire new ways of seeing the river and our beloved city it runs through.
The public is invited to walk among and take in the creative processes in action as a juried selection of artists work with brushes, cameras, sewing machines, pens and hammers, to respond to this historic and environmentally unique local setting. Visitors can also make their own art at selected locations along the riverbank path, and join in related events offered by a variety of partnering cultural organizations.
Philly, get ready for another exciting opportunity for civic engagement that’s sure to showcase the vibrant community of artists and institutions that make our city a major urban arts center!
