What Is Rittenhouse Square?


Rittenhouse Square is a tranquil oasis of green in the heart of one of Philadelphia's most exclusive neighborhoods. One of five original squares planned by city founder William Penn in the late 17th century, Rittenhouse Square is a destination for Philly residents as well as those visiting the city for vacation or travel. It is also the home for the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Association's two outdoor art shows: one held in June and the other in September.




Who Are The Artists Exhibiting At The Show?


The September 2020 VIRTUAL Edition features over 100 artists from around the country and internationally. Each artist is vetted by a panel of their peers.
