Artists from around the country showcase their creative process along Philadelphia’s Schuylkill Banks during Art in the Open.

The biennial, outdoor event takes place across three days, offering visitors a chance to see a jury-selected group of artists produce works of art out in the open.

Set along the picturesque Schuylkill River, Art in the Open spans from Bartram’s Garden to the historic Fairmount Water Works. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the artists as they watch and participate throughout the event.
