Edgewater is a creatively vibrant neighborhood that is also culturally and socially diverse. The Edgewater Fall Art Fair was created as a homage to such diversity by featuring not only the community’s resident artists but also artists from all over Chicago, as a symbol of how Edgewater has always been a welcoming “port of entry” to many different groups of people.
Attendees of the 2nd Annual Edgewater Fall Art Fair will enjoy a rich program of events for all ages and a contagious community vibe:
