From Art in the Open (AiO) Philadelphia:
Professional artists working in all media are invited to participate in Art in the Open 2014. From Friday, May 16, through Sunday, May 18, 2014, artists will use Philadelphia’s Schuylkill River Banks as their studio space, creating new works of art ‘outside, on-site.’
Art in the Open re-frames the plein air tradition in a contemporary context, encouraging both artists and audiences to draw inspiration from the city’s natural and urban landscapes. Using the Schuylkill River Banks Park as studio space, participating artists will have the opportunity to explore new or extend current working methods, develop process-oriented projects, and respond to a compelling intersection of urban and natural spaces in the public realm. Selected artists will have the opportunity to participate in complementary programming and public engagement events, and to exhibit artwork created during AiO in the gallery at The Center for Emerging Visual Artists.

Deadline: December 15, 2013
