On October 19 and 20, Philadelphia Open Studio Tours, or POST, returns for the final weekend of its two-weekend event.
POST, which is produced in conjunction with The Center for Emerging Visual Artists, allows guests to get an exclusive look into the worlds of some of the city’s most celebrated artists.
On Saturday and Sunday, explore the workspaces of artists in neighborhoods west of Broad Street — Center City West, Chestnut Hill, Mount Airy, Fairmount, Francisville, Germantown, Manayunk, Roxborough, East Falls and West Philadelphia. Get one-of-a-kind tours of the artist’s space and learn about the type of art that they create.
With more than 100 studios participating in the art-filled weekend, look forward to a wide variety of artwork, artists and work spaces.
Attendees have two options — a self tour, a free tour where you pick the course, or a guided trolley tour, a tour led by an expert on Sunday, October 20 for $40 per person. Call 215-546-7775 x10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot for a guided tour.
