Over twenty years ago, Art’s Alive was created by the Women’s Caucus for Art. The organization and festival evolved out of a series of open studios, group shows, and community art conferences that took place in the 1980s.
Over the years the organization has evolved. Most people know Art's Alive as the presenters of the annual art festival that brings art into the windows on Church Street in Burlington each June. Art's Alive also operates an art gallery at Main Street Landing's Union Station on the Waterfront and maintains an active program to place art in local businesses.
