Paint the Town

SEPT 21 in downtown Morrison

On Sept 21, from noon to 4 pm, Morrison’s downtown is transformed into an outdoor canvas for hundreds of amateur artists of all ages who gather to Paint the Town. Enjoy a day full of community arts on Morrison's Main Street. We will have fun entertainment, including live bands, and tasty fare from our wonderful food vendors.

Bring your creative mind and help us celebrate 25 years of Paint the Town!

Enjoy the art, music, and food

Three music venues and food courts provide the perfect accompaniment to the painting. Entertainment spans the day from noon into the evening with music chosen to support the visual arts activities. Both professional and amateur musicians perform and a wide variety of music styles and rhythms are featured to encourage an appreciation for the diversity of the arts. In addition, street performers ensure that no matter where the painters are, they are within eye and earshot of music, a magician, balloon artist or other entertainers. When the painting is finished the music continues under the stars and provides the backdrop for dancing and strolling the street to admire the artwork.
