Plein Air (Outdoor) Painting of OHC Neighborhoods Project

In plein air (outdoor) painting, artists work to capture a landscape or cityscape in two to three hours before the light of a scene changes. The Plein Air Painters of Chicago (PAPC) have partnered with Open House Chicago 2020 to paint at fifteen sites in these OHC 2020 neighborhoods: Bronzeville, Hyde Park / Kenwood, Lincoln Park, Logan Square, Near North Side and Near West Side. When viewing photos of completed paintings, visitors can listen to audio clips and read descriptions in which the artists discuss their painting process.
