Urban Plein Air in THE BLOCKS
THE BLOCKS will deploy 25 artists into the city to paint our beautiful, historic urban landscape. On 9/13, 14 & 15 visit the artists in their 10 locations throughout downtown to see how they’re capturing SLC! The show will then open on 9/21 at UMOCA!
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 paintingView more
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.
