Sunflower Days

Clarksville's scenic setting on the Mississippi river is the perfect backdrop for experiencing art in action. A Plein Air Paint Out takes place each year featuring artists who compete for prizes. Watch as artists capture the beauty of the river, the unique architecture of the village as well as the gardens filled with sunflowers. There will be horse-drawn wagon rides for kids and opportunities for children to become artists themselves as they try their hands at various art projects. Live music will add joyful sounds to the event.

Plein Air artists are asked to check in beginning at 8 am at the corner of Howard and Front streets. Artwork will need to be complete by 2 pm on Sunday. Judging begins at 3pm.
