Project Description

Kenn Backhaus

Since 1984, Kenn has played a crucial role in reviving and shaping today’s plein air movement as we know it today.

His commitment and passion not only enhanced the art form but also sparked a new passion for outdoor painting among artists everywhere — even some of the greats that we currently celebrate!

To honor Kenn’s significant impact and leadership in the plein air movement, we’re thrilled to share that Plein Air Magazine will present him with its highest honor — the Lifetime Achievement Award.
