About MCAC’s FAB 40th year
In 2023, the spring art festival will be returning to Birmingham’s Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark as we celebrate MCAC’s FAB 40th anniversary. Take in the Festival’s sights, sounds, tastes, and aromas at this storied, rustic, industrial backdrop central to our city’s skyline. We look forward with much anticipation to fusing the show’s vibrant contemporary arts with this former master of industry.
The 40th year will spotlight 175 juried, fine artists from the state, region, and around the country alongside Corks & Chefs: A Taste of Birmingham (26th year!), Imagination Festival art workshops for kids, Collectors Classroom adult art classes, live music and dance performances, special exhibitions and art installations, cultural partners, a café with food trucks and other favorites, plus other yum moments to happen upon as you tour the show or lounge in the open air at Sloss.
Find art with us the last full weekend in April at this annual spring arts tradition in Birmingham.
Create. Inspire. Educate. Collect.
