Become a Paint Grand Traverse Sponsor

Thank you for your interest in Paint Grand Traverse, a plein air (outdoor) painting festival, presented by Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City. Through Paint Grand Traverse, your organization will connect with an upscale, active audience of artists, art collectors, culture enthusiasts, and families.   

Now in its sixth year, Paint Grand Traverse is a week-long summer festival of landscape painting, live demonstrations, kids activities, art sales, classes, parties, and community events. Paint Grand Traverse attracts top plein air artists from across the United States, who spend the week being inspired by the magic of Traverse City, Old Mission Peninsula, Leelanau County, and the Lake Michigan coastline. More than 200 paintings will be created, each one capturing a special place and moment in Northern Michigan.

We hope you’ll join us as a Paint Grand Traverse 2023 partner, and look forward to helping you and your organization reach your goals through support of the arts and in celebration of the beauty of the Grand Traverse region.
