2020 AOM Art Sale

The Friends of the Theatre sponsor the ART ON MAIN project which also has banners of this art on Main Street during the summer. The art in various mediums is donated by the artists who are supporting the State Theatre and the project. The art is not matted or framed and is 12 X 24″. The 3-D art is in various sizes. Measurements can be provided by requesting this info via email: friends.of.the.theatre.zaac@gmail.com

Click on the link to purchase. You must be able to pick up the art in Zumbrota. To make arrangements call 952-890-8101. No art will be held since it is first come first served. Please print your ticket as proof of purchase. There is also an opportunity to make a monetary donation to the Friends of the Theatre group. The ART ON MAIN original art sale benefits the Zumbrota State Theatre restoration and renovation fund.

Part of this activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. That portion is the Main Street banners, so the banners will not be for sale.

A huge THANK YOU to all who support the State Theatre and the artists!
