the 5th annual SECRET ART SHOW
on Saturday, September 30, 2017!

Hundreds of art lovers attended our fifth annual Secret Art Show pop-up event!  Which “secret” artist creations did you take home? Guests were able to choose from hundreds of original 4” x 6” works of art offered for a donation of just $40 apiece, on a first-come, first-served basis.

For the first time, we also hosted The Artists Salon, a curated space with larger works from 10 renowned artists. (see below)

All of the fun took place at ATB Studios, an air conditioned production space, and also included a hosted reception with hors d’oeuvres, wine and craft beer, a small silent auction, music and live art experiences! All proceeds benefit Burbank Arts for All Foundation.

All proceeds from The Secret Art Show benefit the Burbank Arts for All Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts education foundation whose mission is to ensure every student in Burbank public schools receives a quality arts education as part of their core curriculum. Since 2006, we have furthered our mission by providing supplemental funding twice a year through our grant making program, as well as year-round community engagement and advocacy efforts in support of all of Burbank Unified School District’s 15,000+ students.

The Foundation believes the arts are transformative. We believe all students should have equal access to a quality arts education that nurtures a balanced approach to life, develops 21st century skills for any career path a student chooses, and further enriches a healthy community and creative economy in Burbank.
