CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN ART FESTIVAL

IN GLENCOE, ILLINOIS · Jul 4-5 · SAT & SUN 10AM-5PM


Amdur Productions proudly announces the 4th annual Chicago Botanic Garden Art Festival this summer. Located on the Esplanade at the Chicago Botanic Garden, the Festival offers original works for purchase from a select crowd of 85 juried artists. 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 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.
