Art in the Open Philadelphia

Thursday June 09 – Sunday June 12

Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment.

Inspired by, but re-framing, the tradition of painting¬†en plein air, a juried selection of artists working in a variety of media will create art outside, on-site over the four-day period of June 9-12, along the banks of the tidal Schuylkill River – from the historic Fairmont Park Water Works and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, south to landmark Bartram’s Garden.
