All month long, more than 25 artist-run entities team up to celebrate Philadelphia’s ever-growing contemporary art scene with a slew of collaborative exhibitions and programming under the banner of Citywide Philadelphia.

Check out performances, panel discussions, exhibition openings, receptions and more, as the month-long project encompasses both knowledge-sharing and art-sharing events.

Throughout the month, art spaces are set to host one another as certain exhibitions travel from gallery to gallery to reach a wide audience. Beyond the exchange of exhibitions, participating artists also exchange ideas at ongoing discussion panels across the city.

Participating galleries span from Vox Populi in Callowhill and Paradigm Gallery in Queen Village to Mt. Airy Contemporary and InLiquid in Northern Liberties.

The good people at Citywide Philadelphia make it easy for guests to check out the exhibitions on Saturday, November 16, as a free trolley service is slated to take art-lovers along designated routes to participating galleries. Reserve your spot on one of the numerous free shuttles right here.

The arts fest ends with a first Friday reception on December 6 at the Painted Bride Art Center. The closing exhibition, Locale, spotlights the transition of a number of artists who moved to Philadelphia within the past five years. Their relationship with the city, from unfamiliar place to home, is documented through a collections of works.

The complete list of upcoming events is available here.
