Art Lovers Alert! Don't miss September 21 in Zumbrota.
Our annual Art Splash event begins at 10 am and concludes at 4 pm. It's a self-guided tour of Zumbro Valley artist studios and features art, literature and history. More information, including the brochure with map, can be found at Art Splash.
Then come on down to the State Theatre at 3 pm for the Art On Main closing reception. Enjoy refreshments (including our famous theatre popcorn!) and view all the original artworks and banners up close and in person. You can place your bids until 5 pm (bid online if you can't make it in person). After all the numbers are in (approx 5:20), we will announce the winning bids on all 54 pieces.
We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful artists in our region! They have donated their artwork to help us raise money for the State Theatre Encore Renovation project. All proceeds move us closer to our goal of building the addition to accommodate handicapped accessible restrooms and a more spacious lobby.
Bid early! Bid often!!
The State Theatre is located at 96 East 4th Street in Zumbrota.
The Zumbrota Area Arts Council (ZAAC) is bringing art to the main street of Zumbrota. This is an exciting opportunity for artists to show their art to thousands of visitors and residents in our area. Your artwork could be chosen to be reproduced in full color on a banner which will hang from one of the lampposts on main street in Zumbrota.
Up to 28 works of art will be chosen. Each art piece will be printed on a 44” tall by 24” wide banner. Banners will hang in Zumbrota from May to September 2013.
The artistsʼ original banner artwork will be displayed at local businesses throughout the summer. The original artwork and the banners themselves will be sold on the ZAAC website at the end of the summer. All the proceeds from this sale will go to ZAAC State Theatre Fund.
An opening reception will give the artists an opportunity to unveil their artwork and meet the public.
Thousands of brochures showing the artwork and giving information about the artists will be distributed throughout our area. ZAAC and Zumbrota businesses will promote this event regionally. A website will be developed to display the artwork.
