Established in 1928 by a handful of local art students exhibiting works of art on clotheslines in Rittenhouse Square, the popularity of the Clothesline Art Show increased and the show became an annual destination in Philadelphia for dozens. thousands of patrons who appreciate and collect fine art.
“It is well known that art is important in our lives in many ways. It soothes the soul, relieves stress, arouses passion, challenges our spirits and more, ”said Sandra Sedmak Engel, professional artist and chair of the board of directors of the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Association. “It is our mission to help fine artists share their works with others and we are honored, especially at this time, to contribute to the well-being of the community in this way.”
The show can be found on www.rittenhousesquareart.com and on its social media platforms.
