Ever wonder what an artist’s studio really looks like? Philadelphia Open Studio Tours allows everyone a chance to take a sneak peek 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.
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.
This is your chance to meet some of Philadelphia’s most talented people, and explore some of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods. Participate in juried and open exhibitions related to Open Studio Tours, shuttle tours to studios and more.
After you visit the studios, stick around and take your friends and family to explore the neighborhoods that you might not otherwise find. Chances are you’ll find countless charming shops and restaurants unlike any you’ve seen before.
