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 in Burlington.
Our original gallery is located in Union Station and was curated by Art's Alive for over 20 years. Recently it has been renamed Main Street Landing's Gallery at Union Station . Our premier exhibit space, The Gallery at Main Street Landing, is located street level on Main Street in the CornerStone Building. It features Contemporary art in bi-monthly exhibits from local artists in the main gallery as well as featuring video installations from artists from all over the world in Burlington's first permeant video exhibition space. Both galleries are curated by Little Umbrella Art Curation and are active sites for First Friday Art Walk. The Gallery at Main Street Landing is also available for event rentals.
Scattered throughout the buildings at Main Street Landing 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.
