Arts preview: Experience open air painting with Plein Air at the Ohio Statehouse

Jackie Mantey, Columbus Alive

Hey, fellow Downtowners (Downtownites?).

Stretch your legs at lunch this Friday and stroll through the Statehouse's courtyards to watch dozens of artists paint outdoors; the French call it painting en plein air, hence the name of the event and the group Central Ohio Plein Air, where the participating artists hail from.

The art created during the day will be on view inside the Statehouse throughout July.

Ohio Statehouse lawn
