Name: Artists of the Wall Arts & Music Festival: Stories of the Wall
Date: June 18, 2023
Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM CDT
The Artists of the Wall Festival got its start in 1993, when a group of Rogers Park neighbors came up with a crucial idea. Gangs had been continually tagging graffiti on the 600-foot sea wall to the point where the Chicago park district couldn’t keep up maintenance. The group thought if the wall was painted by the community with art, that it would be respected and could be enjoyed by all throughout the year. And having the event on Father’s Day weekend would make it a family-oriented event that would bring the whole Rogers Park community out.
Mini murals will be painted using inspiration from this year’s theme: “Stories of the Wall” with live music, story telling and dance.
Join the community on a day of celebration.
Stay tuned for more information.
