Don’t miss Fresh Artists’ Bird Brigade, brilliantly crafted bird portraits created by 120 young artists from Philadelphia, Camden, and Norristown public schools to advocate for Bird Safe Philly and Lights Out Philly.
The exhibition is free and open to the public and can be enjoyed during Pier operating hours from August 10 through August 19. Cherry Street Pier is open 7-days-a-week, rain or shine.
