Special painting day

By May 10, 2013

As part of an ongoing “Arts in the Parks” effort, Northern California artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate in a special “open air” painting event on the grounds of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park.

The State Indian Museum and California State Parks present a special “Plein Air Day” on Saturday, May 11.

Free to participate and to watch the mesmerizing artistry-in-action, the day is designed as an opportunity for the community to embrace nature, support the arts and appreciate the beauty of the historic, park-like setting.

Interested artists are encouraged to register early and the first 25 artists to register will receive a special gift compliments of the California Indian Heritage Center Foundation. Visit the State Indian Museum to explore the treasures the historic site has to offer as well.

The State Indian Museum is located at 2618 K St. in Sacramento on the grounds of Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park. The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is free of charge. Admission to the museum is $3 for adults (18 years and older); $2 for youths (ages 6 to 17) and free for children 5 and under.
