Art in the Open brings artists to the Schuylkill River to make artworks.

A curated group of 40 artists and their teams set up camp along the Schuylkill River Trail—from Fairmount Water Works all the way to the South Street entrance—to create live works of art from sunup to sundown. The event was created to give folks the opportunity to connect with Philadelphia’s green spaces, rivers and natural surroundings through the process of art-making, inviting them to watch as local creatives paint, sculpt, photograph and create unique works inspired by the surroundings.

Toting the kids along? Swing by the Azalea Garden (648 Waterworks Dr) from 10am to 1pm on May 19 for Art in the Open Family Day, where little ones can make some art of their own.
