Philadelphia’s favorite postcard-sized show returns!
On view September 6 through 16
Now in its eighth edition, Dear Fleisher, creates fun, engaging opportunities for community members to interact with art and artists, while raising $50,000 to support access to the arts for more than 20,000 children and adults from throughout our city.
A week of events will welcome people of all ages to experience this remarkable exhibition and collect an original artwork from a selection of more than 500 pieces, affordably priced at $50 each. Artwork is displayed anonymously until sold, creating an even playing field for visitors to react to the merits of each piece. More than 300 artists, from Philadelphia and beyond, receive recognition for both their creative talent and generous spirit in support of art for all.
