Art in the Open (AiO) brings the action and intrigue of artists making their art directly to Philadelphia's Schuylkill riverbanks for four days in June. Here, free to all audiences, selected artists work with brushes, cameras, sewing machines, pens, and hammers, to respond to this historic and environmentally unique local setting. The public is invited to walk among the artists and observe their process of creation and craft up close. Park visitors can also make their own art at select locations along the riverbank path and join in related events offered by a wide partnership of the city's cultural organizations.

AiO celebrates the Philadelphia landscape as both inspiration and as an open-air studio for artists. Over the days of June 9 to 12, 2011, from Fairmount Water Works to Bartram's Garden, AiO will explore the natural beauty and urban character of the Schuylkill River: where West Philadelphia separates from Center City and thousands of people enjoy a beloved recreational park of paths and views.
