Chicago to kick off summer season with art fair

May 24, 2013 by  

The 57th Street Art Fair will be taking place in early June in Chicago, meaning that 57th Street, between Kenwood and South Kimbark Avenues, will be closed off to traffic for the fair.

Over 250 artists and crafters are expected to take part in this year’s proceedings, selling such items such as handmade jewelry, prints, paintings, fiber art, and even clothing. All those participating were hand chosen by a jury.

In addition all this, there will be a range of activities for the children, such as hands-on crafts and a playground, food concessions, and an Art Buying Boot Camp set up to teach people the best ways to go about choosing which art to invest in. It looks all set to be an excellent couple of days out for the family with activities that will likely appeal to each member, regardless of their age.

Many of the artists and crafters who are selling at the fair are very likely to be working with Chicago printing companies to prepare. This might involve investing in banner printing services to help draw attention to their booth, or purchasing a sign to display next to the booth.

The 57th Art Fair will take place on June 1 and 2, and there is no charge to attend. Those who require more information can call 773-234-3247 or visit the event’s website, which has information useful to both artists and casual visitors who want to see what is on offer.
