The Bluff Park Art Show started in 1963 when a group of parents from Bluff Park Elementary School sponsored a “Come As Your Favorite Book” dance. The response and support of the Birmingham community was overwhelming.
Since then the Bluff Park Art Show has been an eagerly awaited annual event. The show now attracts over 30,000 people, and artists from all parts of the country are invited to exhibit. The show is held each year on the first Saturday of October.
The show has grown from 65 artists to more than 150, and attracts over 40,000 people each year. The shows proceeds go towards improving the arts in the greater Birmingham area.
Artists displayed their work from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. in the front of the Bluff Park Community Center. In addition to art, there were several food vendors and high school jazz bands.
