250 of the country’s most celebrated artists will showcase painting, jewelry, sculpture, photographs, fashion wearables, furniture and more.
“Our first, modest gathering of artists in 1983 has evolved into the largest suburban art festival in Illinois. This annual event is the perfect mix of talented artists, both young and old, in a lovely location convenient to savvy art enthusiasts and their families,” said festival producer Amy Amdur, president of Amdur Productions.
The downtown streets are closed to traffic during the festival, so attendees can appreciate the city’s architecture and landscaping by foot in a relaxed fashion. Festival-goers with strollers and wheelchairs can enjoy an accessible festival with easy access to all booths.
In addition to the artwork, festival-goers can enjoy delicious food and beverages from neighborhood establishments!
New this year, Art at the Glen will feature an Emerging Artist Section at the show!
Recycle Your Art at the Port Clinton Art Festival! We invite you to bring your gently used art to the fest and donate it to The Chicago Furniture Bank. They’re truly making a difference by distributing furnishings to those leaving shelters and moving into permanent housing. Help them turn empty spaces into cozy homes! Bring donations to the Chicago Furniture Bank booth, Saturday 10am-3pm.
