The Art Center’s Festival of Fine Arts

The Festival of Fine Arts is a two-day outdoor celebration of the visual arts, showcasing the incredible talents of more than 100 artists on Sheridan Road and Park Ave in Highland Park. Exceptional examples of fine craft, including ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, wood and more will be featured at the festival. This coming year, TAC celebrates the fourth year of partnering with Amdur Productions bringing expertise and excellence in the field to our beloved event.

The Festival of Fine Arts will offer activities for children and families, as well as live entertainment and tasty festival treats throughout the weekend. Ever been curious how to pinch a pot or how to work with soft pastels? This year, the Art Center of Highland Park will be hosting mini 45 minute art classes on site! Art enthusiasts will get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making these original works of art with hands-on art workshops taking place at the festival.

Festival-goers will have an opportunity to support TAC by participating in “Bid or Buy.” This unique silent auction will feature a distinct piece of craft from each exhibiting artist.  All proceeds from “Bid or Buy” will benefit TAC and support its mission of ensuring access to the arts for individuals of all ages and cultural interests.
