Vote for your favorite sculpture by dropping a dollar in their can. All proceeds from Art CAN Help will benefit the Seven Loaves Foodbank.
2024 CALL FOR ARTISTS
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). Applications will be accepted until April 1st; however, artists will be admitted on a rolling basis until all exhibit spaces are filled. GET YOUR APPLICATION IN EARLY AS SPACE IS LIMITED.
Successful applicants will be notified of their selection. Once accepted, the non-refundable reservation fee ($50 which includes the temporary business license fee) must be paid within ten (10) days to reserve your slot.
Application for Artists for Art in the Burg will be LIVE in January 2024
Art CAN Help!
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.
