Main Street Landing’s various buildings and grounds are brimming with art.
Walk through the buildings and you will find public art and sculpture; murals, art venues with rotating exhibits; permanent, ongoing exhibits; and individual artworks placed in the hallways and rooms throughout the buildings.
Main Street Landing is home to one of the largest collections of art by Chittenden County artists and a major hub of visual art activity. Union Station is home to the Art’s Alive Gallery, Katharine Montstream Studio, and Green Mountain Photography. The Wing Building hosts the Main Street Landing Wing Gallery with rotating exhibitions curated by Art’s Alive. Skinny Pancake in the Lake & College complex has rotating art exhibits. Scattered throughout the buildings is a remarkable collection of art, including some significant pieces of public art. In front of Union Station at One Main Street is Christopher Curtis’s sculpture, Venus. Lars-Erik Fisk’s Train Ball sits in the lower level and on the roof are Steve Larrabee’s Winged Monkeys. On the second floor of Union Station is a permanent exhibition of Peter Miller’s “Vermont Farm Women” photographs. In the lobby of the CornerStone Building at Three Main Street is Jack Chase’s sculpture, Mobile, and as you walk in, visitors are greeted by Wolf/Whale/Wolf, a large work-on-paper by Burlington artist Sally Linder. Murals by Ron Hernandez are on the walls of Lake & College Building. Throughout all of the buildings, art collected over the years dots the walls.
