Event Details

For one Saturday, each September, Morrison’s downtown is transformed into an outdoor canvas for hundreds of amateur artists of all ages who gather to Paint the Town. The Children’s Art Preservation Association created this unique family art event as a way for the community to participate in the arts together, as families and individuals. The focus of the event is the painting of five- foot squares on and around Morrison’s Main Street. The number of squares painted has grown steadily since the event’s debut in 1994, when 250 squares were painted, to more than 1,800 squares by more than 2,000 children, families and individuals during Paint the Town 2013. More than 6,000 attend the event annually to enjoy the painting, variety of entertainment, and great food. To celebrate its 20th season, the 2014 event will offer 1,800 squares for painting; each a frame and canvas ready to receive the original work of these artists.
