Event Description

CALLING ALL ARTISTS! OCCUPY HYGIENIC!

The rules are simple: one piece per artist, no judge, no jury, no fees, and no censorship!  More than 400 artists rose to the challenge this year and are currently on display at this no-holds-barred art exhibition now celebrating its 33rd year.  

The Salon des Indépendants movement was created by French Impressionists who were not accepted into the established Salon of the late 19th Century.  To protest the rigid arts establishment, these artists exhibited their works in cafés in the seamy sections of Paris.  This revolutionary movement included notable characters such as Van Gogh, Matisse, Munch, Rousseau, Cézanne, and Modigliani among others.  The intent of the artists was to create an artistic event without jury or reward so that all forms of expression and trends in the art of the moment would have a chance to be presented to the public for their consideration.
