Open Studio Night

Join us for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative process of a new generation of emerging artists!

One of the most anticipated events on the School of Fine Art’s calendar, Open Studio Night is the one time each year when PAFA's graduate and undergraduate students open their studios to the public to show and discuss their works in progress.

The event takes place on upper floors of the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building at 128 N. Broad Street—comprising 200 private studios where PAFA students develop and refine their paintings, sculpture, prints, animations, and drawings. Open Studio Night gives visitors a rare look into the creative process of a new generation of emerging artists, and a sense of how they develop their ideas. It also provides a sneak peek of works that may appear in the Annual Student Exhibition (ASE) opening in May, where more than 1,000 works by PAFA students are exhibited in the museum galleries.
