(July 11, 2017 Chicago, IL) Our annual community art festival is this Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 10 AM to 2 PM! The rain date is the next day, Sunday July 16, 10 AM to 2 PM. Everyone, all ages and skill levels, especially the children, is invited to this free event to create art at one of the many stations. Local artists including collective AnySquared and Amie Sell will be there, leading projects under this year's theme: "Sanctuary."
