The Art Center’s Festival of Fine Arts takes place in the eastern section of the affluent Chicago suburb of Highland Park, north of Chicago. The festival is loved and well supported by the art collectors who live in the area. The Art Center, a 58 year old non-profit visual arts organization is home to art classes and exhibitions and hosts this annual festival which is produced by Amdur Productions.
Artists will have the opportunity to interact with the public through art demos and booth chats. Live music, great food and fun activities for kids make the festival a perfect experience for all.
Nearly 100 carefully selected artists from around the country will exhibit their work, including a new program for young artists, called the Youth Artist Division, where 6-18 year olds can exhibit and sell their own original art work or crafts. The FOFA draws up to 10,000 people who come here specifically for the festival, then stay to shop, eat or visit in Highland Park’s central downtown area, or who then head off to the Ravinia Festival.
During the two days, June 23 and 24, there will also be a gallery exhibit inside the building, located at 1957 Sheridan Road, the corner of Park Avenue and Sheridan Road in Highland Park. The themes for the galley exhibit are ‘Musicality’ and ‘Food, Glorious Food’ (more info available on this at www.theartenterhp.org).
