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. Highland Park is a community of 30,000 with more than 52% of the households having incomes of $100,000 or more. About 22% of the households have incomes of $200,000 plus. The high income levels combined with high education and love for the arts make Highland Park a wonderful place to exhibit and sell art. Cash awards for top award winners. $1,000 cash Best in Show award. A new layout launched last summer puts this festival on the boutique and café lined street surrounding the Art Center and features incredible works in both functional and non-functional art categories. The festival is loved and well supported by the art collectors who live in the area. The Art Center, a 55 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. The Festival of Fine Arts welcomes artists with open arms and hosts a lovely artists’ breakfast the Sunday morning of the festival weekend. Art Center Director Gabrielle Rousso, the Board, and Staff of The Art Center are committed to making this a great festival for artists. 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.
