The oldest outdoor art show in the nation will showcase the healing power of art with a virtual event September 10-13.
The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show will celebrate 93 years by featuring the work of 101 jury-selected professional artists from all over the U.S. and Canada. Artwork will be available for purchase throughout the weekend on the RSFAS online gallery at www.rittenhousesquareart.com. Special artists’ appearances, such as art technique demonstrations, artist interviews, and interactive art sessions will occur virtually throughout the event.
The Show began in 1928 by a handful of local art students exhibiting art on clotheslines in Rittenhouse Square. The popularity of the “Clothesline Show” grew, and the show became an annual Philadelphia destination for tens of thousands of patrons who appreciate and collect fine art. The online format now offers this precious gift worldwide.
“It’s well known that art helps us be optimistic about our future. Art is important to society because it is an essential ingredient to empowering the hearts of people,” said Sandra Sedmak Engel, professional artist and Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Association Board of Directors Chair. “It’s our mission to share fine art and we’re honored to help spread a message of inspiration during these challenging times.”
Art patrons can experience the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show: September 2020 Virtual Edition, September 10-13, by visiting the RSFAS website – www.rittenhousesquareart.com, Facebook –@rittenhouseart – and Instagram @rittenhousesquareart.
