Celebration of Arts in Action
September 24, 2016
Saturday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Painting Competition Judging starts at 4 p.m.
Wisconsin Concrete Park, N8236 South Hwy 13, one mile south of Phillips
The park will be host to a Wandering Wisconsin Roadside Art Experience event as one of five special art environments hosting similar events statewide, each including an Outdoor Painting Competition. Attendees to the Concrete Park will be offered an array of instant opportunities to create art in four different mediums: painting on a life-size mural, glazing and firing raku pottery, decorating the park garage with mosaics, and painting open-air, postcard-sized landscapes. All open-air paintings completed at the park are eligible for entry into the competition for cash prizes. Judging starts at 4 p.m. and awards are given thereafter. All materials for each art opportunity will be provided. A quilt display, music, auction and great food make this a wonderful event for the entire family. Stop by on your way between the Phillips Harvest Fest and Ogema Christmas Tree Festival.
