For a fifth consecutive year, West Town's prominent artist community boasts its talents at this pop-up gallery. The West Town Art Walk features everything from artistic spins on classic cocktails to full blown pop-up-galleries. The neighborhood-wide event takes place within West Town storefronts, everything from restaurants to boutiques, with free rickshaws providing aid to tired feet! Many of the participating venues also run their own exclusive promotions and sales during this time, and an official West Town Art Walk raffle for prizes will be feature. Be sure to check out specialty beer tastings from Tenth & Blake and Forbidden Root and a variety of Chicago's leading food trucks located throughout the event!
"Art That Walks" Parade
West Town Art Walk and Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art will present this brand new parade. Art walkers of all ages are invited to gather at a central location (TBA), where they can test their own artistic creativity by making colorful masks, costumes and accessories. After, they can participate in a parade down Chicago Avenue sidewalks, transforming the neighborhood into a living, walking work of art by touting their own unique flair. The parade will conclude with a special celebration, likely a dance party with live music.
