This event is canceled due to concerns surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak. . Refunds will be issued to artists. 

The Burnsville Visual Arts Society  (BVAS) was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in April of 1981. BVAS is a conduit for the Burnsville community connecting them to local and regional artists. As part of that effort BVAS is inviting you to be a part of Art And All that Jazz, a day of music and 60 booths of Fine Art and Fine One-of-a-Kind Craft on Saturday, August 15, 2020 from 12-10PM.  In the past Burnsville has hosted as many as 12-14,000 visitors for Art and All That Jazz.

Our nominal booth fee of $125 includes a breakfast, lunch and one libation for artists for free. The city plans full regional advertising on TV, news outlets, social media as well as billboard ads along  Interstate 35W  facing both north and south. When we get your registration we will also send along a social media link for digital ads you can post to your own webpage or Facebook. Please like Burnsville Visual Arts Society on your own FB page and get the conversation going. Your fee also allows a donation to the 30-Days Foundation.

Coronavirus Considerations

·  In this time of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, it remains the intention of BVAS to hold this event at some point in 2020. The City of Burnsville and BVAS have made a firm commitment to Art and Jazz in 2020. We hope you will include us in your exhibition plans and register Your Intent to Participate  at this time without any monetary commitment. When we are notified of a date by the city BVAS will circle back to registrants asap and confirm your commitment and collect the registration fee.

·  Should health advisories occur, we will keep ALL entrants informed of any modification we may need to make.  We will, at a minimum, continue to promote the event and its artists and their artwork on social media and on the BVAS website.

Art and All That Jazz exposes the regional community to creative expressions of high aesthetic value with a jury for glass, jewelry, fiber arts, photography, painting, drawing, graphics and sculpture. BVAS and Mick Sterling Presents invite you to be a part of Art and All That Jazz in downtown Burnsville so we are reserving pedestrian street space for 60 booths that are 10'x12’ along a beautiful park in the Heart of the City.  There is a sidewalk or grassy median behind your booth for your extra supplies. Eight bands will be performing inside the Ames Center and eight more outside from 12-10 PM.
