Illustration and Krafts (INK) Fest is an annual art festival hosted in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood by the Illustration Student Group (ISG) at Columbia College. This two-day festival seeks to make greater connections between the greater Chicago-land area and local illustrators and artists from the Columbia College Chicago community. This showcase is a wonderful collection of artwork and production that is diverse, equitable and inclusive. INK artists represent the various and vibrant neighborhoods here in Chicago as well as countries and cultures from around the world.


INK Fest Chicago serves as a premier networking opportunity for Illustration students and alumni, and will take place in Columbia College Chicago’s new state-of-the-art Student Center (Opened September 2019). The main feature of INK Fest Chicago will be an artist alley with over 90 artists showcasing original artwork, comics, small press, posters, zines, children’s books, stickers, pins, buttons available for purchase. In addition to the artist alley there will be interactive activities, guest speakers, and panels that everyone may attend (event is FREE and open to the public).
