Urban Plein Air in THE BLOCKS

Urban Plein Air in THE BLOCKS

Urban Plein Air in THE BLOCKS

Presented by The BLOCKS SLC at Downtown Salt Lake City

The Blocks, in partnership with the City and the County, are activating downtown streets and underutilized urban spaces during a three-day period—September 13, 14 & 15—with the spontaneous and participatory nature of Plein Air (outdoor) painting. This project invites audiences to engage with participating artists and get a view into their process of completing a painting, providing the opportunity to see live art. We will work with a curated team of 25 artists to demonstrate their painting skills to the public at 10 curated locations in the downtown area.

This three-day period will culminate with an exhibition of the completed works on September 21 at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art from 6-8:00 PM.

This is your chance to see art in action, learn about the creative process and interact with our local artists!

Admission Info

This is a FREE event. During the two artist work days, 9/13 & 9/14, simply visit the artists in the 10 locations and see what they're up to. The reception at UMOCA will also be free admission.
