The Burbank Arts For All Foundation (BAFA) has issued a call for entries for their third annual Secret Art Show which will be held on Saturday, September 26. Artists of any age are welcome to submit works of art on 4×6-inch cards for inclusion in the Secret Art Show through Friday, September 18.
The Secret Art Show displays art by renowned artists, celebrities, Oscar Award-winning filmmakers, animators, Burbank City officials, along with area teachers and students. The one-night-only event allows patrons to purchase individual artworks for $40 donation each. Upon purchase, the Secret Artist behind the work is revealed.
Those interested in submitting art and become one of hundreds of Secret Artists may visit the BAFA webpage and download the entry packet at http://www.burbankartsforall.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Artist-Entry-Packet-2015.pdf.
“The magic of The Secret Art Show is in the personal charm of each and every one of the secret works of art,” commented Alexandra Helfrich, Co-Chair of the event. “Guests respond to art work from their heart, whether they have chosen a work of art created by a highly collectible artist or an imaginative 10-year-old student,”
“We are extremely excited about the caliber of artists who are returning to participate in our third annual Secret Art Show, as well as the many new artists who are joining us this year.”

“We invite you to celebrate with our community at – quite literally – one of the most colorful events of the season… not to mention FUN… with a hosted wine and cheese reception and a few secret surprises planned for the night,” added Trena Pitchford, BAFA Executive Director. “You don’t want to miss it!”
