POST 2017

Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST) offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at Philadelphia's best and brightest creative minds at work through an approachable, self-guided tour. Join us for POST 2017 and be at the heart of one of the city's largest celebrations of visual art. 


Returning to POST? You will notice some big changes this year!

First, we're shifting from an East/West split to four quadrants: South, Northeast, Northwest, and West. Each quadrant will get one day to throw open their doors and shine, allowing visitors to fully engage in the unique culture of our each of our POST neighborhoods. This new approach will also give YOU—our artists and community partners—more flexibility to explore the studios of your compatriots.

We are also looking to strengthen your bonds with each other leading up to POST and year-round. Keep an eye out for a series of community meetings that will provide a forum for sharing ideas and building alliances tailored to spotlighting your neighborhood's unique identity.
