The French term, plein air, refers to the practice of painting outdoors. We will be taking a walking tour around the City of Lincoln to draw and paint the most important sites and buildings from Lincoln’s cooperative history. Whilst the practice of plein air is usually reserved for beautiful landscapes, we will instead focus on the social beauty of self-organising and solidarity.
All ages and abilities welcome. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. The event will begin at Mansions of the Future.
Plein Air forms part of Alicja Rogalska’s Desire Lines project. Desire Lines takes as its starting point the rich heritage of the co-operative movement in Lincoln, where co-ops still play a vital role in the local economy and community. Rogalska is working as a commissioned artist with Mansions of the Future throughout Summer and Autumn 2019.
