OPEN Call for Artists
The Fairmount Park Welcome Center in iconic LOVE Park is seeking local Philly artists interested in showcasing their talents in the Center Art Gallery. The Welcome Center address is 1599 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19102, at the busy corner of 16th Street and JFK Boulevard. Yes, this is the same location as the famous Food Trucks in Center City Philly. In conjunction with the art gallery we operate a tourist concierge service, gift shop and outdoor festivals/concerts. The exposure is tremendous and potential participants are welcome to visit the space anytime for a first hand inspection! Artists will have the opportunity to display their work for 6 – 8 weeks. There is NO charge to the artist and works can be sold at a consignment rate agreed upon with the gift shop manager.
All mediums are welcome including drawing, photography, painting, printmaking, mix media or digital arts, within the physical constraints of the gallery. The Welcome Center is open to the public Monday thru Saturday from 10am – 5pm. Artists are encouraged to sponsor a gallery opening reception to introduce your creativity to Philadelphia. All elements of the reception will be at the artist’s expense.
