Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST), a program of The Center for Emerging Visual Artists, offers a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a visual artist. Each October, explore hundreds of artist studios and community partner spaces in more than twenty Philadelphia neighborhoods and see the artistic process unfold right in your own backyard.
POST, the largest open studio tours in the region, spotlights the vitality of Philadelphia’s visual arts scene and underscores the important contributions artists make to our city’s economic and civic life. Great for all ages, this citywide festival features studio visits, hands-on demos, workshops, artist talks, receptions, exhibitions and more—all through an approachable and easy-to-navigate, self-guided tour.
