Where ideas come to life
Experiencing art in Door County shouldn’t be done only by seeing the completed works of the artists. See the artists creating their pieces in their own realm. Many of the artists and galleries in the county hold artist demonstrations so that people can see the process of making art.
Aside from demonstrations, there are other ways to get a glimpse into the artistic process. Several galleries will team up to put together Art Crawls so you can have a comprehensive look at multiple galleries in the area. Check out the Progressive Art Crawl that happens yearly in Egg Harbor and the Spring and Fall Art Crawls that take place in Ellison Bay.
And don’t miss the Plein Air Festival in July. The festival attracts painters from all over the country who set up their easels and paint their favorite Door County scene outdoors. You can find artists in fields, on the shoreline, and on the sidewalk and observe them at work.
