Amdur Productions Proudly Launches the Chicago Art & Design Show at Navy Pier
Saturday April 8th and Sunday, April 9th

This spring, a brand new juried art show will take place in Chicago. Proudly presented by the award-winning Amdur Productions, the Chicago Art & Design Show at Navy Pier is scheduled for Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th from 10 am to 5 pm each day. Featuring original art of all mediums including glass, jewelry, furniture, ceramics, sculpture, wearable art, and photography, as well as extraordinary work from local furniture designers, graphic designers, interior designers, photographers and much more, the Chicago Art & Design Show is sure to generate interest from the city’s art lovers and beyond!

“We are thrilled to debut a new show this year,” said Amy Amdur, president and CEO of Amdur Productions, whose Highland Park, Illinois-based company will be producing 26 additional shows throughout the Chicagoland area starting in April and continuing through November. “Our production at Navy Pier presents an exciting opportunity for artists, designers and the public to showcase and experience art in a unique and popular destination,” she continues. “We love producing shows in the heart of downtown Chicago, because they are easily accessible for public viewership and they allow us to feature a host of extremely talented local artists and designers,” she adds.

The Chicago Art & Design Show will display the work of 100 juried artists and designers and will be located within the spectacular exposition hall of the world-renowned Navy Pier. This beautiful space will feature a section dedicated to artists and their large sculptures, and is the perfect spot for exhibiting the high-caliber art that Amdur Productions’ shows and fairs have become known for. Navy Pier is conveniently located and is accessible by several bus lines as well as the “L” train. Indoor parking is also available for those who choose to drive. Admission to the show is free.

“The response to this show from artists and designers near and far has been amazing,” says Amdur, whose company produces several other Chicago-based art shows including the Gold Coast Art Fair, the Millennium Art Festival Chicago, Southport Art Festival, Artfest Michigan Avenue, the West Loop Art Fest, ArtOberfest, and Friday Art Markets at Daley Plaza. “What sets our art shows apart from most others is that every piece is made by the artists themselves,” says Amdur. “The artists are on-hand throughout all of our shows to discuss their work and share their vision and motivation behind each piece.”

“Navy Pier is a major tourist attraction drawing millions of visitors each year,” she adds. “Artists and designers recognize its tremendous appeal for people of all ages, not only in Chicago, but throughout the entire country,” she continues. “They are excited to show their work in a truly iconic space and to share their art and design pieces with an even greater audience. I’m sure that this will be a very well attended show.”
