Amdur Productions proudly announces the 5th annual Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival this summer. The festival is located ½ hour north of Chicago in Glencoe and showcases the work of 95 unique artists in a pristine setting overlooking a lake, spectacular gardens and 385 acres of majesty. All of the artwork embodies a botanic theme, use or material. Festival-goers will have the opportunity to see the masters at work, with interactive art demos and booth chats taking place all weekend long!

The festival opens at 4 pm July 3 with a special Chicago Botanic Garden Members Preview, and is then open to the public July 4 and 5. The preview party is exclusive for members of the Chicago Botanic Garden. Show set up is July 3 during the day.

The incredible artwork available for purchase at the Festival is rivaled only by the beauty of the setting. The 385-acre Chicago Botanic Garden features 26 breathtaking display gardens and four natural areas uniquely situated on nine islands surrounded by lakes. The Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival adds to a day of exploring one of the Midwest’s most celebrated destinations! Daily drawings will take place, and several lucky festival-goers will receive Art Buck$, courtesy of Amdur Productions, to spend on a piece of art at any Amdur Productions’ 2015 festival.
