Now in its 23rd year, the annual North Shore Festival of Art will once again return to Westfield Old Orchard on July 27-29 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. North Shore and other Chicagoland residents can come and enjoy the weekend long festival celebrating more than 150 of the country’s finest artists. Their one of a kind works will be featured throughout Westfield’s inner court of the shopping center and will showcase works constructed from an array of mediums that include ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, sculpture, mixed media, paintings, drawings, photography, printmaking, wood and furniture. The open-air exhibition will span throughout the center.
Additional fun and prizes will complement the art festival as live music will be featured with performances from celebrated bands and musicians. Children will enjoy a train, crafting projects and more. To top things off, daily drawings will take place giving festival-goers the chance to receive “Art Buck$” to spend on a piece of art at any future 2012 Amdur Productions festival.
Admission and parking for the North Shore Festival of Art is complimentary.
