Art in the Open (AiO), a partnership between The Center for Emerging Visual Artists (CFEVA) and Fairmount Water Works, re-frames the ‘plein air’ tradition of creating art outside and on-site in a contemporary context, encouraging both artists and audiences to draw inspiration from the city’s diverse natural and urban landscapes. The event will run from May 15th- May 17th, 2020. Using the Schuylkill River Banks Park as studio space, participating artists will have the opportunity to explore new working methods, develop process-oriented works, and interpret a compelling intersection of urban and natural environments in the public realm. Selected artists will also be able to participate in complementary programs and public engagement events, as well as exhibit their finished work as part of the AiO exhibition series. AiO reaches an estimated 12,000 visitors over the course of the three-day event. Local, National and International artists, working in all media, are encouraged to apply.

For more information or questions about the application process, please contact Genevieve Coutroubis, Executive Artistic Director at CFEVA: (215) 546-7775 x 11 or genevieve@cfeva.org.

Local, National and International artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Apply HERE
