This past weekend marked the opening of Spruce Street Harbor Park and our first Art Star Pop Up Market of the season! People came out in droves to check out the park, lay in the hammocks, play the boardwalk games, and shop our market. The weather was perfect and the energy was amazing! On market wasn’t the only thing happening at the park. Candy Coated was set up providing hands on screenprinting, there were face painters and craft tables for kids, performers, a DJ, and our friends over at Inliquid brought in knitter Melissa Maddonni Haims to yarn bomb the flagpoles (amongst a handful of artists scheduled to create on site installations throughout the season). Also on view are murals by 8 Philadelphia artists (more on that soon, we are waiting on final placement of two important murals) It really felt like a celebration of how awesome our city can be! Please come check out our next Pop Up Market this Saturday from 11-3. Our full vendor line-up can be found here.
Here are some photos from the day – please check out our Flickr set for more.
This is why WE LOVE PHILLY!!!
