Philadelphia Open Studio Tours
A behind-the-scenes view of art in the making
Ever wonder what an artist’s studio really looks like? Philadelphia Open Studio Tours allows everyone a chance to take a sneak peak inside the city’s most creative spaces. For two weekends in October, artists around the city open their studios to curious visitors, inviting them to talk, check out how they work, and purchase artwork.
The 2013 Tour will take place October 5-6 for venues East of Broad Street and October 19-20 for venues West of Broad Street.

With more than 300 artists participating, there’s a huge range of arts and crafts to take in, from painting and photography to quilts, ceramics, light sculpture and more.
