Twenty-four exceptional landscape artists will take part in the upcoming Plein Air Art Invitational at Zion National Park during the first full week of November running from Nov. 7 – 13 … and you are invited to join them. Plein air is a French term for “of or relating to painting in outdoor daylight” or “works begun and finished entirely outdoors, on location and from life. Period.”
Celebrating the role art has played in the creation and history of the popular 226-square mile Zion National Park which sees more than 3.5 million visitors a year, the Plein Air Art Invitational is a unique opportunity to watch and interact with amazing artists at work. And, while you are there, you might also enjoy attending daily painting demonstrations and evening lectures as well as a paint-out and auction on Saturday, November 12 capping the week of celebration. Then another 150 paintings go on sale at the Zion Human History Museum on Saturday, November 12 and Sunday, November 13.
Funds raised through the plein air event are donated to the Zion National Park Foundation to support important projects including the successful Zion Youth Education Initiative, which creates opportunities to bring school children into the park for potentially life-changing educational experiences. If you can only visit the park once this year, this is the ideal time to come.
