Behold gorgeous Philadelphia in all its photogenic glory at the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center's Philly Photo Day Exhibition, opening December 6. (Photo by J. Zale for Uwishunu)
Beginning at the opening reception this Thursday, December 6, you can see Philadelphia in a day through the perspective of 1,800 beginner, amateur and professional photographers at the 2012 Philly Photo Day exhibition.
Back on October 26, The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) launched the biggest ever Philly Photo Day during which everyone in the city was invited to send photos from around town taken on that day to submit for this awesome exhibition.
PPAC printed every single photo submission they received, and now is your chance to see what Philadelphians documented.
The free opening reception will be held from 6-9 p.m. and will include complimentary refreshments, raffle sales and a look at all of the Photo Day submissions, including those chosen to be on display on SEPTA busses, trains and billboards. To see the site locations for these displays, click here.
If you can’t make the opening reception but would like to see all of the photos, don’t fret, the gallery will remain open during regular business hours through December 28.

Note: The exhibition will not be open after 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 8 and on Friday, December 14; PPAC will be closed on December 25, 29 and January 1.
