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 textile art, ceramics, light sculpture and more.
This is your chance to meet some of Philadelphia’s most talented creatives while also exploring a bunch of the city’s thriving neighborhoods. The Philadelphia Open Studio Tours includes self-guided and guided tours of artist studios and related creative workspaces, gallery exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops, artist talks and receptions.
