Plein Air Art Event 

The City of Wildwood hosted it's 9th Plein Air Art Event on Saturday, May 6, 2023. "En plein air is a French term that translates literally as 'in the open air.'" This type of art work is completed on location, while outdoors.  

On the morning of the event, participants checked-in at City Hall and were given the location of Babler State Park.  Artists were allowed to photograph, paint, draw, etc. anything they want, at that location, but the catch is artists had only 8 hours to complete their artwork.! 

Congratulations to our Winning Artists!

Winners all together
