Mission Statement

InLiquid mobilizes and makes accessible the visual arts culture of the greater Philadelphia region in order to unite communities, establish wider audiences for artists and designers, facilitate the relationship between artists and collectors, and nurture the public’s appreciation of all forms of visual art.

Vision Statement

InLiquid is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to creating opportunities and exposure for visual artists while serving as a free, online, public hub that showcases Philadelphia’s vast visual arts culture.

Through the active promotion of artists’ work and credentials via online accessibility, numerous ongoing exhibition programs distributed throughout the city in galleries and alternative spaces, meaningful partnerships with cultural organizations and corporate clients, unique community-engaged events, and the facilitation of relationships with art collectors, InLiquid delivers the richness of our region’s visual art culture to broader audiences, thus increasing appreciation of all forms of visual culture.

A Brief History

InLiquid was founded in 1999 by local artist Rachel Zimmerman under the observation that the Philadelphia region boasted a huge number of talented visual artists, yet only a small fraction were seen by the public, and the artists themselves were not actively engaged in dialogue and cooperation. Begun informally as a nonprofit online exhibition venue, meeting place, and information resource for artists, the organization quickly expanded its role with an increased number of members, expanded site content, and a regular series of public programs and “real world” exhibitions. Unlike commercial art sites, InLiquid has never existed as an agent for art sales, rather it serves as a free educational resource and conduit for interaction between artists, curators, patrons, and the public.

Today, InLiquid is a virtual hub for the visual arts in Philadelphia: online, we are the most comprehensive source for regional visual arts information & activities; in the community, we present dynamic, enriching exhibitions and programs in a variety of flexible public venues.

InLiquid received its 501(c)(3) certification in 2002.
