‘Inside Out’ Brings Art to Philly and Suburban Neighborhoods
See great works in Manayunk, East Passyunk, Media, and Haddonfield, New Jersey this summer.
For the third year, the Philadelphia Art Museum is bringing reproductions of high-quality art in pop-up locations in neighborhoods around Philadelphia and the suburbs. The 2017 edition of “Inside Out” launches this week and will run through December.
As in the past, this year’s “Inside Out” will feature art from the likes of Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, and Brancusi in unexpected places. It’s designed to foster understanding and appreciation of art by bringing it out of the museum and directly to the audience.
The installations in the city this spring include East Passyunk and Manayunk; outside Philadelphia, the installations will come to Media as well as Haddonfield, New Jersey. In the fall, displays will come to Brewerytown and Old City in Philadelphia, as well as Glenside and Lansdowne. In the meantime, you can download the “Inside Out” app at Google Play and the Apple App Store.
In Haddonfield, tours will be held on four Saturdays — May 20, June 3, July 1, and August 5 — starting at 10 am at the Kings Court gazebo. The Manayunk launch will take place June 3 at 10 am at the Pretzel Park Farmers Market, while the Media launch is the same day, at 11 am at the Media-Upper Providence Free Library.
The program will also include an Instagram Photo Contest that runs from June 9 to 12. Just use the hashtag #InsideOutUSA on your photo, and you’ll be eligible for a national award. The contest includes the four other cities — Detroit, Charlotte, Akron, and Miami — where these exhibits are running this year, with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Residents of the neighborhoods and towns featured in “Inside Out” — this year, or previous years — can get in to the museum for free during “Inside Out Weekend,” from July 21 — 23.
