Friday & Saturday, October 17 & 18, 2014
Over 150 artists join in this exceptional outdoor event that stretches the length of Santa Fe’s historic Canyon Road. The Paint Out & Sculpt Out celebrates the tradition of painting & sculpting “en plein air” that began a century ago on this iconic Santa Fe trail. Experience the creative process of established and emerging artists – including weavers, jewelers, potters, and carvers – who take the opportunity to showcase their world-class talents alongside the sculptors and painters.
Throughout the day at numerous venues, a variety of artistic demonstrations and musical performances take place at myriad locations on Canyon Road. Artists at some locations will be working with children.
A festival parade with marching bands takes place at noon and students from the Santa Fe Public Schools Music Education Program will perform in the early afternoon. Music, food, art shows, and refreshments will be offered at locations all along Canyon Road.
