Welcome to the Bluff Park Art Association

The Bluff Park Art Show started as a way to raise money to expand the Bluff Park Elementary library and has grown into a nationally recognized and acclaimed art show.  Organized and staffed by a dedicated volunteer board, the show draws many visitors to Jefferson County each year.  Artists from across the country submit their work months in advance hoping to be juried into the show.  With an eclectic mix of media, the Bluff Park Art Show provides visitors with a fresh experience each year displayed in the picturesque setting of a heavily tree shaded park. We hope you will join us this year!

A very big “thank you” to Target for their support


In celebration of its 50th Bluff Park Art Show, the board has approved establishment of a $50,000 endowment fund. The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham will manage the fund. The target of the board is to raise the $50,000 initial amount in time to announce it at the show on October 5, 2013. The current status of contributions is that: 22 donors have pledged or given $29,944 an amazing 59% of the goal!
