Art in the Open Air

Since 2003, the Telluride Plein Air Festival has been a staple in Telluride's Independence Day festivities. The festival, which spans a week, brings over 20 nationally renowned artists from around the country to paint "en plain air" (in the outdoors). It wraps up with a three-day sale at which artists can sell the work they've been painting all week. 

The Telluride Plein Air Festival is a fundraiser for the Sheridan Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to restore and preserve the Sheridan Opera House. 40% of the revenue goes to supporting the community programming at the Sheridan Opera House.
