Enjoy the working waterfront and watch as artists recreate Sturgeon Bay on canvas. Area artists are invited to participate in this popular plein air painting event on Saturday with artists spreading out along the shores of Sturgeon Bay. Works must have a maritime theme and be completed and returned to the festival grounds by 1 pm. A silent auction follows with proceeds going to the artist and the museum. Entry fee is $15 for adults and $10 for students. To pre-register print this pdf "Paint the Bay" Registration Form, fill it out and mail it to us. Registrations will also be taken beginning at 8 am the morning of the event, at which time all the artists' medium will be stamped and artists will be released to begin painting.
