More Info

Art in the Open (AiO), presented through the PNC Arts Alive initiative, is a biennial citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations, and their relationships with the urban environment. The program, now entering its tenth year, was designed to shape community through art experiences that bridge the Philadelphia’s outdoor spaces, natural areas, and historic waterways for the enjoyment of the general public.

Join us from May 18 to 20, 2018 as a new group of up to 40 jury-selected artists and collaborative teams working in all media take to the Schuylkill River Trail, from the historic Fairmount Water Works to South Street, to develop artwork that will inspire new ways of seeing the river and the city it runs through.

From dawn until dusk over the course of three days, visitors of all ages are invited to witness new works of art evolve while engaging with a vibrant community of artists--in some cases becoming part of the creative process. Artists' working times will vary; most activity takes place between 9 am and 5 pm.

Partner organizations throughout Philadelphia are teaming up with AiO to extend the experience through a series of related programs leading up to and during the event, showcasing the vibrant community of working artists, galleries and institutions that make our City a major urban art center. Keep an eye on our Events Page for details on all of the action!
