The Plein Fun Fest competition is sponsored jointly by Plein Air Palm Beach (PAPB) and Old School Square. “The aim of Plein Fun Fest is to be a regional art event to support artists of South Florida. We want to have something that reflects our group and we want to be local. We are not interested in competing with the national plein air competition events,” said Donna Walsh, publicity chair.
