PLEIN AIR SAC

2021

RECAP

OVER 100 CHILDREN SERVED

EIGHT PAINTING DAYS

ALMOST 100 REGISTERED ARTISTS

OUR MISSION REACHED AN AUDIENCE OF OVER HALF A MILLION 

We launched Plein Air Sac in 2021 with the goal of reaching out to local artists and our community at large. Over sixteen weeks we put on eight painting days, hosted a community reception, and sponsored an end-of-the-year juried art show. 

 

Along the way, we were also able to raise funds to host several youth art education days, sponsor a young artist to the Crocker Art Museum's summer art camp, and donate art supplies to the Food Literacy Center's food education efforts.

We'd like to give a huge shout-out to all our partners and sponsors, the many local artists who participated, and the Sacramento community that embraced our every effort.

Thanks, and we hope you enjoy the photo gallery below.

OUR 2021 MEDIA RESULTS

In 2021, we deployed a multi-faceted communications strategy that leveraged email, social media, traditional media, and targeted social media advertising. We did this with the help of one of our key partners, Blue Bushel Creative & Marketing, Inc. With their help, we were able to reach a large portion of the Sacramento community. In this section, we've broken down the results of our media strategy, in the hopes that it might help sway your decision to become a sponsor of Plein Air Sac.

Here are the results of our efforts.
