Free Range Film Festival

"All you have to do is turn your easel."

The 36 artists taking part in last week's Plein Air Duluth: Paint Du Nord festival discovered they didn't need to pack up and move to new locations when they wanted to paint a new scene; all they had to do is adjust their view a little. 

Annie Dugan has some festival highlights and is ready to go with a new festival: The 11th Annual Free Range Film Festival this weekend in her big old barn.

Duluth Art Institute

36 artists - unsupervised - will be roaming the outdoor landmarks of Duluth this week.  They have five days to create five masterpieces as part of the Plein Air Duluth: Paint Du Nord festival all this week at the Duluth Art Institute.  Thursday, the community gets to join in and paint with them at the Rose Garden, and then Friday is the unveiling of their work.
