Jury selects 35 Artists to participate in Art in the Open Philadelphia!
Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment. Inspired by, but re-framing, the tradition of painting en plein air (creating art outside, on site), 35 artists working in a variety of media will create art outside, on-site over the four-day period of June 9-12, 2010along the banks of the tidal Schuylkill River – from the historic Fairmont Park Water Works and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, south to landmark Bartram’s Garden.
During the day, partnering institutions will offer extensive opportunities for public engagement with the festival, showcasing the vibrant community of working artists, galleries and institutions that make Philadelphia a major Urban Art Center, and its two rivers: waterways which continue to inspire creative response and also serve as an ecologically critical lifeline for its residents.
