Open Studio Night

One of the most anticipated events on the school’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 all five studio 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 and drawings throughout the school year.

Open Studio Night gives visitors a rare up-close and personal look into the creative process of a new generation of emerging artists, see the inner workings of their studios, and get a sense of how they develop their ideas. It also provides a sneak peek of works that will appear in the Annual Student Exhibition (ASE), where more than 1,000 works by PAFA students are exhibited in the museum galleries. Join us on February 16, 2018 for this unique PAFA experience.
