American Legacy: Our National Parks
On Location with the Plein-Air Painters of America
March 8 through August 26 – Special Exhibition Gallery
To create this exhibition, organized by the Haggin Museum in California, 38 members and guests of the Plein-Air Painters of America selected their favorite park and set up their easels at sites across the country.  The resulting 100 paintings draw viewers into seasonal and daily experiences of color and light rendered in some of America’s most beautiful places. En plein air is French for “in the open air” and is often used to describe painters who work outdoors, on location.
