This October, The Center for Emerging Visual Artists™ is pleased to bring you the 11th Annual Philadelphia Open Studio Tours. This event features over 300 local participants and mobilizes over 20,000 members of the community, making it the most comprehensive tour of artist studios in the region and the only event of its kind in Philadelphia. During the first two weeks of October, this annual festival of visual art includes self-guided tours of artist studios and creative workspaces, hands-on workshops, gallery exhibitions, demonstrations, artist talks, and receptions. Festival schedule attached. For full listing information, visit philaopenstudios.org.
Studio Tours are divided geographically over the course of two weekends and run Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 6pm. Program offerings spanning 18 unique neighborhoods quite literally put the professional visual artists “on the map” for locals and tourists alike. As a program of the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, The Open Studio Tours create substantive opportunities for Philadelphia artists, increases awareness of the quality and quantity of visual art in our city, and creates strong bonds among artists, local businesses, arts organizations, and the general public.
As the premier fall visual arts festival, The Philadelphia Open Studio Tours cumulatively provides an opportunity for the public to engage with Philadelphia’s entire arts community from a new perspective – and based on individual’s own specific interests. No other program in or around Philadelphia consistently brings such an intimate and diverse cultural experience to the community free of charge and across such a large geographic area.
