Also planned are two unique projects, Travelling Art Encampment and Plein Air in the Park that are seeking artist involvement.

Travelling Arts Encampment

The Travelling Arts Encampment is an interactive temporary art installation, inviting artists and the festival attendees to create tents and shelters throughout Les Gove park. Using non-traditional materials, the installation will imagine and inspire a new type of shelter. Artists will create the tents prior to the festival that will serve as the inspiration for creation throughout the day. To participate and to create a tent prior to the event for installation, contact

Plein Air in the Park

Coordinated by Artist Frances Buckmaster, Plein Air in the Park invites artists for all or part of the day to come with an easel and paint or drawing supplies and capture the environment around them. To participate in Plein Air in the Park as part of ArtRageous, contact Frances Buckmaster,

Earlier this year, Auburn’s 2009 ArtRageous: Artist in Action Art Fair received the top “Spotlight Award for Program Excellence” for Events, Fairs and Festivals from the Washington State Parks and Recreation (WRPA) honoring public agencies for outstanding and unique achievements.
