Bluff Park Art Association
The Bluff Park Art Association was established in 1965 as a non-profit organization promoting visual arts in the Bluff Park community and across the Birmingham metropolitan area. Its major event is the annual Bluff Park Art Show, a juried art festival held on the first Saturday of October at the Shades Cliff Community Park. Each year the association makes a purchase from the show for display in Hoover public buildings.
The group's special projects have included major donations to the Birmingham Museum of Art, Aldridge Gardens, the Hoover Public Library and Hoover Public Schools. The association also participates in the maintenance and improvement of the Bluff Park Community Center at Shades Cliff Park, and funds scholarships for college students planning careers in the arts.
