Wisconsin Artists Paint the Town at Plymouth’s 4th Annual Paint the Town en Plein Air

The 4th annual Paint the Town en Plein Air, begins September 19th, and runs through September 27th, 2013 in Plymouth, WI. This week long outdoor painting event celebrates the fall season by highlighting some of the Plymouth area’s exquisite facades, historic buildings, murals and interesting landscapes. The event will also give the public the opportunity to view downtown Plymouth’s 21 new murals.

The area’s artists will gather for an outdoor painting festival to showcase Wisconsin’s unique artistic talents and to compete for some amazing prizes. This is the perfect fall event for those who love innovative artwork and the spirit of competition. Art fans can bring their entire family to enjoy the fun and the local scenery!

The Friday evening start of the event includes a reception beginning at 6pm, along with a silent auction, live entertainment and a cash bar. All are encouraged to come on out and enjoy the evening until 9pm. For overnight vacationers and artists, The Inn on Hillwind Bed and Breakfast is nearby to provide accommodations, food and wonderful Plymouth hospitality.

Artists can register to paint and compete for one day or for the entire week long event on Thursday, September 19th through Wednesday the 27th from 8am to 9:30am. This week offers a wonderful chance for all to enjoy the history and culture of Plymouth and participating artists can choose whichever area of the Plymouth map they wish to paint. The artists receive the Plymouth area map at registration.

Artist’s prizes include a $1000 Purchase Award, $300 for first place, $200 for second place and $100 for third place, as well as Non-Cash Merit Awards (3) and a Viewer’s Choice Postcard Award. The Viewer’s Choice Award is voted on by the public depending on which artist they believe represented downtown Plymouth the best. With the artist’s permission, their piece will then be made into postcards and the proceeds will benefit the Plymouth Arts Center’s Awareness Program.

The event is hosted by the Plymouth Arts Center and admission is free for the public. The Plymouth Arts Center is a great place to visit all year long with family and friends, to explore the unique arts culture in the Wisconsin area, so stop out and see us!
