Closing Day Paint/Sculpt-Out at the Hilbert Museum

Saturday, August 14, 2021 at 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


To mark the closing of the 110th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition, a Paint/Sculpt-Out will be presented in Old Towne Orange, near the Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University, allowing art enthusiasts to watch CAC artists create new works of vignettes inspired by the 1940s.

Models in period attire will pose as a couple departing for a journey by train against the backdrop of the vintage architecture of the historic 1938 Mission Revival Santa Fe train station and Old Town Orange, as well as a high-fashion model ready for a photo shoot next to a 1946 Packard Clipper.

There will be kid’s art opportunities with art stations set-up and a kid’s gallery for our budding young artists to show us their stuff. It’s free so, bring the whole family!

The Hilbert Museum is located in Old Towne, which encompasses the largest Nationally Registered Historic District in California. This charming downtown area is dotted with antique shops, art galleries, historic buildings, restaurants and more!

It will be the last day to view the 110th Gold Medal in person! You don’t want to miss the spectacular exhibition while you can!

Attention CAC Artists! We Need You Here!

CAC artists, please join us for a wonderful closing paint/ sculpt-out in celebration of the 110thAnnual Gold Medal Exhibition. Bring your painting or sculpting supplies and enjoy a joyous day of painting with fellow artists.

Parking: Parking in the Hilbert parking lot will be extremely limited on the day of event so We strongly encourage you to park in the FREE City of Orange/Old Towne West Parking Structure on the corner of Maple and Lemon streets— it’s just a block away in back of the museum and is an easy stroll to the museum and to numerous nearby dining and shopping options. There is very limited FREE parking in front of the Museum, only in spots marked “MUSEUM PARKING ONLY”(Please don’t park in other spots, which are University faculty-staff only — you may be ticketed). There is also some street parking but, please check the parking signs and time limits before parking. Please refrain from parking in the Ruby’s Diner parking lot.

NOTE: Please make sure to bring a mask in case it is needed for inside the museum– guidelines are changing rapidly

An adult family member must accompany children during all Family Days/ Youth Programs
