The 27th annual Buckman Art Show & Sell is Saturday and Sunday, March 11 and 12. It’s a major fundraiser for the award-winning arts-integrated academic program at Buckman Arts Focus Elementary School. Held at the school at 320 SE 16th Ave., 140+ juried artists and craftspersons, great food, dance and music performances come together to support the Buckman’s legacy arts program. There is a gallery for the artwork of Buckman students too.
