It’s cold and early. To be specific, it is 8:30 a.m. and 14 degrees. But nevertheless, five members of Kansas City Plein Air Coterie, known as KC PAC, line up dutifully in snowy Swope Park for roll call. They will spend the next hour plein air painting, completing a landscape of Swope Park. The group is celebrating its 101st consecutive Sunday morning session and, coincidentally, the inauguration of its 101st member.
Read on (and listen!) for a wonderfully produced primer on what KC PAC is all about.
