Art on Main


Zumbrota Area Arts Council is bringing art to the streets of Zumbrota! 

The streets of Zumbrota will become a public art gallery for the summer of 2016. Twenty-four (24) banners featuring the works of talented local artists will brighten the city streets. The banners will be displayed on light poles throughout downtown Zumbrota from June through mid-October. All of the original artwork which inspired these street banners will be on display at sponsoring businesses, City Hall and Zumbrota Public Library throughout the summer.

In 2011 ZAAC purchased the historic State Theatre in Zumbrota.  Proceeds from the ART ON MAIN project will help the theatre restoration project. Plans include adding handicapped accessible restrooms and increasing the size of the lobby area.

Closing Reception & Art Auction – Friday, October 14th, 2016 from 6:30 to 10:00 pm – VFW Banquet Hall, Zumbrota, MN

Where will you be the evening of October 14 at 6:30 pm? We hope you’ll join the rest of Zumbrota at the ART on Main Closing Reception & Art Auction. There will be live music, food, an auction of items and experiences, and best of all—a silent auction for the original art and the banners themselves. Can’t attend but want to place a bid? No problem–we’ll send a proxy. To view the art, request a proxy bid, ticket request and all other information go to or contact Roxanne at Wild Ginger, 507-732-4123.
