ART in the OPEN on Philadelphia's Schuylkill Riverbanks

ART in the OPEN celebrates the Philadelphia landscape as both inspiration and as an open-air studio for artists from May 18th to 20th. The natural beauty and urban character of the Schuylkill River - from Fairmount Water Works to Bartram's Garden -  are explored.

WRTI's Susan Lewis considers how public art-making events, such as this weekend’s ART in the OPEN, can change our sense of place.

As senior producer of arts and culture, Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and producer of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series, to which she also contributes weekly intermission interviews. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
