OPM has received a performance grant from Art Shanty Projects for $800 to deploy four (4) painters on two separate dates of the 2020 Artists On Ice program. Each artist receives a $50 honorarium toward travel expenses and supplies for each performance.
Demonstrating artists will paint for two (2) hours in their medium of choice and take turns supervising three (3) Berton Boxes, OPM's community paint-boxes which will offer visitors a chance to answer for themselves the question, "Does Paint Freeze?" Each Berton Box will be equipped with paper or panel and brushes plus watercolor/water, oil paint/thinner or pastel sticks. Only minimal painting supplies would be provided (ie, black and white), sufficient for a quick dab to experiment.
Total time commitment for each demonstration period is 12:00 to 4:00pm including setup and takedown with 2-hour demonstration time from 1:00-3:00pm.
