Event attendees share your commitment to the arts and the preservation of our community’s plein air movement.  Your support will emphasize your commitment to culture, creativity, art education and the history and future of the plein air painting tradition, and help to sustain Olmsted Plein Air's mission. Awards here https://shop.olmstedpleinair.com/collections/awards-sponsorships

Your support will be recognized during the event (if desired). All sponsors will be recognized on our website, in print materials, banners, gala program and the commemorative art catalog to be produced exclusively for this year’s Invitational.
