PAINT THE TOWN
Paint the Town attracts an audience in excess of 6,000 visitors annually who come to paint and view the art. Community, friends, family and visitors enjoy this unique outdoor gallery for months as they stroll the street until the art fades leaving the canvas ready for next year.
Three music venues and food courts provide the perfect accompaniment to the painting. Entertainment spans the day from noon into the evening with music chosen to support the visual arts activities. Both professional and amateur musicians perform and a wide variety of music styles and rhythms are featured to encourage an appreciation for the diversity of the arts. In addition, street performers ensure that no matter where the painters are, they are within eye and earshot of music, a magician, balloon artist or other entertainers. When the painting is finished the music continues under the stars and provides the backdrop for dancing and strolling the street to admire the artwork.
Over the last 20 years we have had so many fun memories! Here is some information about Paint the Town & the CAPA organization
