The Philadelphia Art Meetup Group Message Board › Fourth Fridays on South Street
This is an ongoing monthly event according to the people at southstreet.com. South Street's next Fourth Friday would fall on Friday, March 25th abd, according to the website, all participating galleries are open from 4 PM to 8 PM. I would expect other area businesses to be open until at least 9 PM.
I'm particularly interested in the gallery run by the Dumpster Divers, a group of Philadelphia found object artists. I do this sort of work myself (examples at www.jim.ulrich.com). Their exhibition venue is at 604 South Street, Philadelphia
According to the southstreet.com site, artists are also exhibiting at the following venues:
Art from the Heart, 535 South Street
Arts Street Textile Studios, 626 South Street
The Aktion Gallery, 641 South Street
Neighborhood Bike Works, 508 South 5th Street
