This year’s show will take place on October 7, 2017 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
The 54th Bluff Park Art Show, always the first Saturday in October, is set for October 7th and will bring 145 artists to the park in Hoover so that art enthusiasts – both new and experienced – can enjoy an early fall day to view and buy fine art while enjoying the wholesomeness of the historic Bluff Park community.
The Bluff Park Art Show is free and open to the public. And free shuttles are available to bring people to the park as there is no parking available at the park.
The Bluff Park Art Show is presented by the Bluff Park Art Association, an all-volunteer non-profit organization that exists to promote access to the fine arts for everyone. In addition to the annual show, the organization places pieces from its 100+ piece permanent art collection in schools, libraries and other public venues. Additionally, the Bluff Park Art Association annually awards a competitive college scholarship to a Hoover area high school senior who will be majoring in art.
The first show was held in Bluff Park to benefit the Bluff Park Elementary School library and has grown into a prestigious annual event. The top award is a purchase award, and the winning work is added to the permanent collection. These works are displayed in local schools, colleges and other public buildings.
Proceeds from the Annual Show go to support the Arts in the greater Birmingham community. Over the years we have undertaken many projects, both large and small. These have varied from buying art books for school libraries to commissioning public sculpture and paintings.
