I'm excited to share that I am one of forty-one artists selected to participate in Art in the Open Philadelphia from June 9-12, 2011.
I will be using Twitter over the four days to help folks keep up with where exactly I will be painting along the Schuylkill River banks.

Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment. Art in the Open debuted in June 2010, bringing a selected group of artists to the Schuylkill Banks - from the historic Fairmount Water Works to Bartram's Garden - to inspire new ways of seeing the river and the city it runs through. For four days, June 9-12, 2011 a juried selection of artists will again work outside in a creative process open to everyone.
AiO was curated by Amy Lipton, ecoartspace, New York, NY; Brian H. Peterson, James A. Michener Art Museum, Doylestown, PA; Stuart Shils, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Andrew Suggs, Vox Populi, Philadelphia; and Mary Teeling, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia.
The Opening Reception will be at the Fairmount Water Works Grand Pavilion on Wednesday, June 8 -- special guest Mayor Michael Nutter will be there to announce June as Art in the Open month.
