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 200 artists participating, there’s a huge range of arts and crafts to take in, from painting and photography to textile art, 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.
POST offers visitors the chance to go behind-the-scenes with the Philadelphia Open Studio Tour Guided Trolley Tours; see the creative process unfold through a curated experience; interact with emerging and established professional artists; and participate in the excitement of Philadelphia’s renowned visual arts community during its peak season.
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.
