Sponsoring an Award at Olmsted Plein Air Invitational goes beyond the unique opportunity to engage with people in a sought after demographic — a sophisticated and passionate group of art collectors and the nation’s top plein air artists. You will have both delight in and have a special bond with the recipient of your sponsored award. Event attendees share your commitment to the arts and the preservation of our community’s plein air movement. Your support will emphasize your commitment to culture, creativity, art education and the history and future of the plein air painting tradition, and help to sustain Olmsted Plein Air's mission.
As an Awards Sponsor you will have the first opportunity to preview the artwork, a full hour in advance of the gala ticket holders, and you will have the opportunity to begin purchasing artwork 15 minutes before the doors open.
Your support will be recognized during the event (if desired). All sponsors will be recognized on our website, in print materials**, banners, gala program and the commemorative art catalogue to be produced exclusively for this year’s Invitational.
