Own a Part of the Park - The Chestnut Group

May 23, 2019 - May 27, 2019

The Conservancy and The Chestnut Group, a local nonprofit organization of plein air painters, will co-host a fundraising art show and exhibit "Own a Part of the Park". The exhibit is open on May 23, 24, 25, and 27 from 9 AM to 4:30 PM and May 26 from 12:30 - 4:30 PM at The Parthenon.

"Plein air" is a French expression for painting outside in the open. Artists from the Chestnut Group have been painting outside in Centennial Park for the past year. The art show will feature works by over 60 artists. Almost half of sales will support The Conservancy and help underwrite our programming in the Parthenon and Park.

SPECIAL PREVIEW PARTY - MAY 22 - The Conservancy and The Chestnut Group are hosting a Preview Party on Wednesday, May 22 from 6 - 8 PM. This is the opportunity for our loyal supporters to have the first viewing and selection of the art for purchase, and to make a substantial contribution to The Conservancy. Please RSVP to
