2nd Annual Art on the Fox
A fun-filled festival weekend is in store as Art on the Fox makes an exciting return to the charming streets of Downtown Algonquin on September 10 and 11! Hosted by the Village of Algonquin, the fest will showcase the work of 75 of the nation’s top juried artists, along with live musical performances and family-friendly activities including sand art, face painting, a graffiti wall, and an interactive kid’s art tent! In addition to exceptional artwork in a variety of price points and mediums, including paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture and more, guests will also be able to enjoy all that the newly renovated downtown Algonquin has to offer including several restaurants just steps away!
Attendees are invited to bring their gently used wall art to the festival where it will be donated to the Chicago Furniture Bank, a local nonprofit that distributes furnishings and art to those leaving shelters and moving into permanent housing. Several artists from this show are participating in Amdur Productions’ Green Ribbon Project. Artists place a green ribbon on a piece of art in their booth, and if the piece is sold, 10% of the sale will be donated to Amdur’s 2022 charitable partner, Make-A-Wish Illinois. Admission is free and there is plenty of free nearby parking. The Public Arts Commission will be judging the show. For more information, contact Amdur Productions at 847-926-4300.
