Walk Around Philadelphia : 2023 Exhibit @ Cherry St Pier

July 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


This exhibit features images from the city’s edge created by artists who’ve set out to explore the city’s border on foot.

Since 2016, Walk Around Philadelphia has evolved into a citywide public program that has facilitated the exploration of the city’s furthest (and wildest) margins for hundreds of Philadelphians.

Walk Around Philadelphia creates cultural events that bring people together in shared experiences that connect them to their own bodies, their neighbors, and the landscape of Philadelphia.

Through facilitated walks, exhibitions and narrative storytelling, the project uses the structure of exploring the city’s perimeter to engage with themes of borders and boundaries, privilege and access, social and environmental justice, infrastructure and ecosystems, commerce and incarceration, indigenous history and colonization and more.

The walk currently happens twice a year in February and September, along with offering retreat opportunities and other programming. The next walk will take place over four weekends (Fri/Sat/Sun) from Aug 25th – Sept 17th.
