More Information

Outdoor, Physical Show CANCELLED
NEW! Virtual Event: August 15-16, 2020
Over the past six decades, the annual Sidewalk Art Show has become a beloved tradition for our community, infusing downtown Roanoke with energy, creativity, and excitement. Thousands visit the show each year to peruse the artists' tents, discover new treasures, and make new friends.

Traditions must evolve sometimes, and that’s where the Taubman Museum of Art is now with the Sidewalk Art Show. Given the current situation with COVID-19, the Governor’s order to limit gatherings, and our commitment to our community’s wellbeing, the Taubman Museum of Art has made the tough decision to cancel the on-site, physical show scheduled for August 15-16.

But don’t despair! You’ll still be able to purchase fine art works and support artists, only this year in a virtual form.

Just recently launched, the new Sidewalk Art Show Online Art Sale features a range of works available for purchase, including jewelry, fine art photography, painting, sculpture, and more. Proceeds from the sales benefit both the artists and the Museum, supporting the arts in Roanoke and beyond. You can visit the shop online at shop.taubmanmuseum.org.

And on August 15-16, you can experience the show in a new way on our web site and social media channels. We’ll connect you with artists through virtual, live experiences such as Q+A’s, demonstrations, studio tours, and more. You’ll get an insider’s peek into the artists’ workspaces, learn about their creative processes, and see the new projects they’re working on. Additional details about this digital experience will be shared soon, so stay tuned!

The Taubman Museum of Art is grateful to all that have supported the fundraiser and is excited to share these wonderful new virtual experiences with you online.
