According to the latest Jackrabbitt Speaks report, artists are needed to paint exterior panels to Centercamp Cafe area prior to opening day, you know, the large murals. Also, there are going to be art kiosks inside with 4'X4' panels on 3' foot bases. Max size for 2 diminsional art is 4'X4', smaller works will be placed together. You can sign up for Jackrabbitt and check their archives for past issues. I believe you need to email them a portfolio to get approved for murals to participate in that way, I believe checking in with volunteer co-ordinater was meantioned also but I deleted my last issue...
You can always put down a dropcloth most anywhere to do portrait work. Best to work out of the wind, unless you want a little alkali in your medium. I've seen big canvases set up for burner participation. Go for it.
