Art Map Burlington 2006-2020

Art Map Burlington, a project of Kasini House, was published monthly from April 2006 to March 2020. The magazine and website covered all visual art exhibits in the city of Burlington, as well as Colchester, Shelburne, South Burlington, and Winooski. From April 2006 to March 2016, Art Map Burlington was a 9″x6″, 24-28 page booklet that included listings for all the active art venues, as well as events, news, and reviews. From April 2016 to March 2020, Art Map Burlington was a 18″x12″ double-sided broadsheet folded down to 9″x6″.

Every issue included a map of Burlington’s art venues. At its height, just before the 2008 financial crisis, Art Map Burlington included almost 70 venues throughout Chittenden County. The March 2020 issue, distributed just before the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns began, included 27 venues in Burlington, one venue in Winooski, one venue in South Burlington, and four venues in Shelburne. 

Art Map Burlington was started by Ric Kasini Kadour and Christopher Byrne after an Art Town Meeting upstairs at Nectar’s in early 2006. Kadour was the editor in chief and layout designer. Byrne managed listings, advertiser relations and distribution. The launch of Art Map Burlington was held at Main Street Landing Union Station and was covered by WCAX.

All issues of Art Map Burlington are housed in the Silver Special Collections Library at the University of Vermont.
