Our fall gallery show features artworks created as part of Art in the Open, a public art program in which selected artists create their work on the Schuylkill Banks for three days in May. Ten artists working in a range of media will present work in our gallery and on our trails. Enjoy artist talks, light refreshments, and a guided walk to the outdoor installations at the reception.
ABOUT ART IN THE OPEN
AiO is a biennial citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment. This year, 30 artists were selected by jury to utilize the Schuylkill River Banks as their studios, making their creative process accessible to everyone. Working over the course of three days (May 13–15, 2016), these artists infused the River Trail—from the historic Fairmount Water Works to South Street—with art, inspiring new ways of seeing the river and Philadelphia.
