Art in the Open

Art in the Open: May 18-20, 2018

Art in the Open, presented by the PNC Arts Alive Intiative, turns the Schuylkill River Banks into a public studio space in which artists explore new working methods, develop process-oriented works, and respond to the intersection of urban and natural environments. Showcasing the creative processes of 25 to 40 multidisciplinary professional artists, AiO puts a contemporary spin on the “pleinair” (open air) genre of art popularized in the mid-19th century. The free biennial event brings together printmakers, sculptors, media artists, environmental artists, choreographers, and more to create new work outdoors over the course of three days.
