Art in the Open celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with Philadelphia’s urban environment? Myself and 28 fellow artists will be choosing a location along the Schuylkill – where we will work and share our practice. So come on out, get some fresh air, see the sites along this most historic part of the river!

Here are some helpful links about the event and more:
