Plein Air Festival

June 8 –15, 2024

Plein Air means “open air,” and this popular style of painting first came into prominence in 19th-century France. It involves painting outside and allowing the changing light over the hours to affect the painting itself, resulting in a vibrant and unique work of art that reflects the daylight hours it was painted in. Cedarburg’s festival is one of the largest of its kind in the Midwest, an amazing event that we highly recommend checking out!
