Well folks, it is with regret that the Burlington Cultural Council has decided not to go ahead
with plans for Arts on the Common 2009. The results of two different
attempts to canvas local artists were very dissappointing. Of the (95) local artists that we contacted, only (40) responded
at all. Of the forty people (17) responded YES they were interested, (8) said they might be interested
and (15) people responded NO. Considering, also, the apparent lack of interest from the Burlington community;
it would really be a waste of time and effort to continue this event.
For the seventeen people who did respond
with interest there is a good chance that we will continue our relationship with Wayside Commons and set-up a smaller exhibit
as we did last year. I will be sending more information to those artists as we work out further details. Thanks to all of
you who have supported our event in the past.
The Burlington Cultural Council is looking
for new members! Interested? Know someone who is?
