September 23rd is the last chance to catch the Walk Around Philadelphia 2023 exhibit upstairs at Cherry Street Pier!
This exhibit features images from the city’s edge created by artists who’ve set out to explore the city’s border on foot alongside other work inspired by walking and additional documentation of the project.
You are also invited to join one of the earlier segments of the walk itself:
121 North Columbus Blvd
General Admission: FREE
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 & more.
Facilitated by artist JJ Tiziou, Walk Around Philadelphia is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.
Tiziou is an artist, block captain, and Licensed Massage Therapist. He has walked the full perimeter of Philadelphia 11 times. His “How Philly Moves” mural at PHL International Airport was named “one of the nations’ best public art projects” by Americans for the Arts. It’s the largest piece of public art in the city, happens to be right on the city’s border, and features photographs created as part of the 2008 Fringe Festival.
In an earlier life, Tiziou was the main photodocumenter of the Festival from 2003 to 2007, and he'd love to walk with you.
Contact the Fringe Festival Box Office for up to date accessibility information.
The exhibit is up one flight of stairs. There is no ramp or elevator at Cherry Street Pier.
This event does not require proof of vaccination to attend or masks to be worn
