Seventh Annual Historic Canyon Road Paint Out & Sculpt Out
Fri, Oct 17 11:59 PM thru Sun, Oct 19 2014, 11:59 PM
Friday & Saturday, October 17-18, 2014
A celebration of art, history, and culture in Santa Fe's festival tradition

The art-loving public is invited to experience art in a whole new way during the weekend of the Paint Out & Sculpt Out on Historic Canyon Road. Mingle with artists at receptions & gallery openings, experience the creative process of artists painting “en plein air”, and join in Santa Fe's first Art Flash Mob.

Friday, October 17th
The weekend's activities begin on Friday night with interactive art exhibits, exhibitions, and “meet the artist” receptions. Music, refreshments, and myriad special events will be held at many of Canyon Road's 100 fine art galleries, shops, boutiques, and restaurants.

The event celebrates a century-long tradition of artists working outdoors on this ancient trail that leads from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to Santa Fe, and which today is an international art destination. The public will have the unique opportunity to watch art come to life at the hands of both established and emerging artists.

Saturday, October 18th
More than 150 artists - painters, sculptors, carvers, glass blowers, and weavers - will spend Saturday on Canyon Road creating original works of art using a variety of media and styles. Music, food, art shows, and activities for kids will be offered at many locations along the road.

At 3pm, the public is invited to participate in a loosely choreographed Flash Mob Art Collaboration and dance gathering. During this exciting performance, 5 Canyon Road artists will paint on one very large canvas and a Santa Fe dance troupe will lead a flash mob dance. Onlookers may join in by painting on the same canvas as the artists and by dancing.

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. All Paint Out & Sculpt Out events are free and open to the public.
