New walk exhibit & new walk dates!

Between an exhibit at Cherry Street Pier and the 12th iteration of the perimeter walk, we’ve got a whole lot of options for your calendar…

Exhibit upstairs @ Cherry Street Pier:
June 16 – Sept 24

The new expanded Walk Around Philadelphia 2023 exhibit is getting installed upstairs at Cherry Street Pier, and will be on view from June 16 through September 23rd.

This exhibit features images from the city’s edge created by artists who’ve set out to explore the city’s border on foot, along with some other walking-inspired work and other documentation of the project.

There’s also a video loop installation featuring footage from the walks; if you watch the whole thing, you’ll have circumnavigated the entire city 3+ times, with high school students & retirees, and in sun, rain & snow!

Join us there 5-7pm for First Friday on July 7th!

Cherry Street Pier is an indoor / covered venue, so you can check out the show anytime rain or shine!

The space is also open late, so you can catch the exhibit till 9pm, or till 11pm on Fridays & Saturdays!

Accessibility note: While much of Cherry Street Pier is accessible, the space with this exhibit is up one flight of stairs.

If you know of an ADA-accessible venue that would be interested in hosting a future iteration of this exhibit, please get in touch.
