Plein Air Grand Marais is an outdoor painting competition in which artists have 7 days to capture the 3,340 square miles of Cook County. Blank canvas turns into fresh works of art depicting this scenic landscape.
Spend the day on the look-out for artists at work. Stop by the Art Colony to pick up a scavenger hunt map and get tips as to where artists might be found painting. Once an artist has been spotted, watch as the painting unfolds under the mastery of the artist’s brush.
