Art in the Open: Open Channels

Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art and their relationships with the urban environment. This year, AiO has been re-framed as a biennial event, and selected a new group of 30 artists interested in using the Schuylkill River Banks as their studios-- making their creative process open to everyone. Working over the course of three days (May 16-18, 2014), this jury-selected group created works of art along the Schuykill Banks - from the historic Fairmount Water Works to Locust Street - inspiring new ways of seeing the river and the city it runs through. "Open Channels" is the first in a series of three exhibits showcasing the completed works.
