Tailgate Paint Out
June 3 @ 8:00 am - June 5 @ 5:00 pm
The Tailgate Paint Out is a first-of-its-kind, tailgate style event, focused on artists that have never been to one of our events in the past or are emerging artists. Artists and Observers will be participating together in the sublime environment and stunning beauty that is Sedona. Sedona Arts Center has roots going back 60+ years to the founding of Sedona, and what better way to experience it, than sharing it with your fellow community members. If you haven’t been to, or visited recently, this is a great opportunity to get to know it again.
*Note-All events will take place at Sedona Arts Center.
