Weather Won’t Dampen Art Birmingham

Annual festival returns to Shain Park for 34th year.

Rain or shine, Art Birmingham will go on this weekend in the city’s Shain Park. More than 150 painters, sculptors, and other artists will display their works. Art Birmingham director Max Clayton tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller it’s the first major fine art fair of the season and a chance for people to put cold weather behind them. The event runs from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday.

John Leben is one of the artists expected to appear at Art Birmingham. Below is a sample of his work.
