Annual Quick Draw Artists’ Competition

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


The Quick Draw at the Trinidad History Museum is a fundraiser for the A.R. Mitchell Museum.

FREE Plein Air Painting Exhibition and Live Auction Fundraiser

Join us for the annual museum fundraiser featuring a Plein Air Painting Exhibition of professional artists who quickly paint an amazing work of art in just one hour! This community event is free to the public and offers everyone the chance to watch master artists at work painting live models, still life set-ups, or from photographs of their choosing. It’s an exciting timed event that pushes their skills and provides an intimate look into their painting abilities and prowess. Stroll the grounds of the Trinidad History Museum’s gardens and historic buildings as the artists work furiously to complete their masterpiece.
The excitement builds as the final bell rings and the competition ends. The museum volunteers work quickly to display the final works of art before the live auction begins while eager buyers bid high on their favorite piece of art to proudly display in their home.
Please join us at the Trinidad History Museum to watch the exhibition unfold right before your eyes, then vote and bid on your favorite work of art. Thank you for supporting both museum’s mission and efforts.
