Celebrate Flag Day and join dozens of plein-air artists as they converge on Capitol Square. Artists throughout Ohio will “choose a spot” on Capitol Square and paint in the tradition of plein air. En plein air is a French expression which means "in the open air", and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Ohio Statehouse visitors are invited to visit with artists from Central Ohio Plein Air as they create their works of art. Artwork created during this day will be placed on exhibit in the Ohio Statehouse throughout the month of July. Some artwork will be available for purchase in the Statehouse Museum Shop. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled.

The event is presented in partnership with Central Ohio Plein Air. More information about COPA is available here.
