Art in the Open

Friday, May 20, 2022 (All day)
  • Art in the Open 2022

The biennial Art in the Open (AiO), hosted by the Center for Emerging Visual Artists and Fairmount Water Works, returns this Spring!  

Working in all media, Art In The Open artists will bring their studios to the Schuylkill River Trail between the Fairmount Water Works and South Street for three days from May 20-22. The experience along the riverbank allows both the artists and their visitors a chance to explore Philadelphia’s historical, ecological, industrial, and artistic connections to the river. The works offered will transcend the typical viewing experience of art presented in four wall galleries or online viewing rooms.
