Founded by artists in 1928, and run by a committee of artists today, the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show is the oldest outdoor art show in the country. Steeped in rich history and tradition, there is absolutely no other show like it.
Twice a year, professional artists from across the nation and beyond, come together to share their work in the heart of Philadelphia, right here in Rittenhouse Square.
Returning visitors and patrons understand the unique sensations offered by our extraordinary setting. At the show, whether enjoying the dappled shade of this grassy park or talking with an exhibiting artist, you'll feel beckoned to step away from the frenetic world of schedules and deadlines. The color, imagery, and sculptural forms breathe life into the city during these two long-awaited events each spring and fall.
We invite you to join us at our next show.
