Bisbee Plein Air Festival 2022


The Plein Air Festival and Competition at Central School Project 
Thursday, Oct 6 - Sunday, Oct 9, 2022


The Bisbee Plein Air Festival traditionally has been held the 2nd week of October. It is produced  by Central School Project.

Artists come to paint Old Bisbee’s historic architecture, sprawling staircases, vintage streets, industrial mining remnants, and colorful homes set amidst the scenic Mule Mountains to compete for $700 in prizes. On the final day artists gather for the judging downtown where art lovers can view and  purchase the work right off the easel. Each year we also have workshops, activities, and exhibitions held in conjunction with the competition.
