This weekend, check out artists’ studios in neighborhoods east of Broad St., as part of the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours. Going on for more than a decade, POST offers us a chance to step into artists’ studios, workspaces, and homes to get an inside glimpse at the magic and get a feel for what’s going on in Philadelphia’s bustling arts scene. This weekend, artists in Fishtown, Kensington, Northern Liberties, Old City, Center City East, and South Philly will be welcoming guests on Saturday and Sunday from 12-6, free of charge.

Not only is it cool that, for a change, we get to go to the artists rather than the other way around, but these tours give us a great excuse to go exploring different neighborhoods on our way to and from different artist spaces. And with the weather looking cooperative this weekend, it ought to be an excellent experience.
