Southport Art Festival

The festival will showcase the work of more than 75 of the city’s most diverse artists who work in a variety of mediums, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, jewelry, sculpture, photography, glass and mixed media. Attendees can look forward to seeing Chicago-based standout artists, such as Todd Babb, an innovative sculptor; Shawn Keiffer, an edgy architectural photographer; and Ezra Siegal, an abstract painter. In addition to supporting the arts and viewing incredible artwork that is available for purchase, festival guests also will have the opportunity, through live art demonstrations and booth chats to speak one-on-one with the artists.

Each year, the Southport Art & Music Fest also hosts an exciting lineup of live music. Taking the stage this year are some of Chicago’s favorite musical entertainers, including Hairbangers Ball, Wedding Banned, Stache and 97 Nine. There will also be a special area designated just for kids with interactive games and activities. Restaurants in the Southport Corridor area will be open for business, serving up summer favorites.
