If you find yourself looking for something really interesting to do this summer, take a day to view some amazing pieces of art at one of Chicago’s oldest art events, the 57th Street Art Fair. As an alcohol free ocassion, the fair is the perfect environment for a fun family outing, especially with the hands on activities and playgrounds for children to enjoy. Located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood streets, the fair will include a multitude of diverse forms of art such as: glass, jewelry, leather, photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, wood, ceramics and fiber.
And don’t worry about feeling famished! The street fair has food to please everyone’s palate available from multiple venues. Along with the general opportunity to speak with artists from around the country, the fair is offering an exciting program playfully titled, Art Buying Boot Camp. It is a guided tour through the fair with art-buying experts who can help you with everything from determining the best price for a piece to the best colors to match your living room.
