The 2nd Annual Art On Main Event

The streets of Zumbrota have been a public art gallery all summer long. Local artists have donated their work to help raise money for the renovation of ZAAC's State Theatre, a historic landmark that serves as a center for concerts, plays and film. Twenty-five colorful banners pepper the downtown, while the original works are also on display in the sponsoring businesses. Online bidding is currently underway for both the banners and the original art work. Go to ART ON MAIN to see all the items. Then join us for refreshments and the final bidding frenzy on these beautiful works of art at the

Art On Main Closing Reception and Live Auction

Friday, September 26 at 6:30 pm at the VFW Banquet Hall 

All of the banners and original work will be on display for viewing and bidding. The event will feature live music by the 40's CBB Jazz Group, dancing, food and wine. Attendees will be able to bid on Artful Experiences as well as on the Art On Main pieces. Tickets for the event at the VFW are $18 and are available in Zumbrota at Wild Ginger, All in Stitches and Crossings. 

Can't be there in person? You can bid online until 7:30 pm for the original artwork and 8 pm for the banners. Everything will be sold to the highest bidder — no reserve prices.  For tickets or information about bidding online, please call 507-732-7616.
