THE 2013 HIGHLINE CLASSIC JAZZ FESTIVAL FEATURED FIFTEEN TOP AREA BANDS IN ONE BIG DAY OF MUSIC AND DANCING AT DES MOINES' LANDMARK EVENT CENTER. See some of the pictures from this year's festival!
Burien Arts’ Fifth Annual Highline Classic Jazz Festival was Saturday March 9th from 2:30 pm-10pm and offered a Big Program at its new location, The Landmark Event Center in Des Moines.
There was more music with fifteen bands participating in three music venues, and more styles of music including Straight Ahead Jazz classics, early and mid -20th century jazz styles, from Dixieland, Gypsy Jazz, Blues, Ragtime to Big Band Swing.
20/20 will be held in the tried and true Burien Community Center in 2013.
Entering its 5th year, this is THE public Art Happening of the Fall! The Keller Williams Realty office at 455 SW 152nd. St. was a sumptuous setting for the art in 2012. Burien Arts and all the artists Thank You Keller Williams - what a great partnership! Unfortunately the wonderful venue proved to be too small, so Burien Arts will present OUR AWESOME 20/20 in the Burien Community Center in 2013.
Burien Arts’ 20/20 Vision features 400 small-format pieces of excellent, affordably priced original art by more than 20 emerging artists of the Puget Sound region, as well as a silent auction of select additional original art by two featured artists and 20/20 Vision artists. To insure the quality of the art, and that a variety of art styles and media are represented in the event, artists participate by invitation only. During the event there are surprise performances, and tasty snacks and beverages are provided by the many local restaurants that generously support Burien Arts. The event is FREE and open to the public.
The 20/20 Vision art show and sale was initiated, and continues to be presented, by Burien Arts. Launched in 2008, the event provides a public venue for local and emerging artists to exhibit their work and gain broader exposure, and it is a major fundraiser for Burien Arts. Net proceeds from 20/20 Vision are used by Burien Arts to continue and expand existing, and to offer new, public arts programs, services and experiences. Most of the small format art works are priced at $40 each – with a minimum of 50% of that amount coming to Burien Arts. Each year, some artists generously donate part or all of their commission from each sale to support Burien Arts.
Plan to join us at 20/20 Vision in 2012. Mark it on your calendar for the evening of Saturday, November 17th, 2012. See you at the Keller Williams 20/20 Gallery for the night!
