2021 - Spring Art in the Burg returns to Celebrate the Arts! Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
For the first time, local businesses, schools, and neighborhoods will participate in Art CAN Help by creating sculptures from unopened cans of food. Sign up to create a sculpture or come and enjoy. Vote for your favorite sculpture by dropping a dollar in their can. All proceeds from Art CAN Help will benefit the Seven Loaves Foodbank.
The Middleburg Arts Council invites artists to take part in this town-wide event. This is a juried event, and if selected, artists will need to bring their own 10'x10' tent (white top preferred - no tarps). Artists will be assigned a location around the town on a first-come-first-serve basis. Location information will be provided to the artists, along with set-up time, prior to the event.
Successful applicants will be notified of their selection. Non-refundable reservation fee: $50 which includes the temporary business license fee.
For the first time, Art in the Burg will offer a People's Choice Award. Artists selected to participate in Art in the Burg may also submit one piece of art for the People's Choice Award. A digital image will be requested upon the artist's selection. Voting will take place on the Arts Council's Facebook page. The winner's art will be displayed during Art in the Burg and they will receive $100 and a People's Choice Certificate.
Schools, businesses and individual teams are invited to create a unique can sculpture, using unopened cans of food, to be displayed during Art in the Burg. Patrons will vote for their favorite sculpture by making a cash donation, with the sculpture receiving the highest dollar amount when tallied being the winner of the "CANS" Art Festival Award.
