This Saturday Marks Your Chance for Some Art in the Park!

Impatiently counting down the days until the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival next weekend? So are we, so we’ve decided to channel our anticipation productively and we encourage you to do the same by going to The Unity Park Advisory Council’s third annual Art in the Park this Saturday, July 23! Children and friends, neighbors young and old, pair up with professional artists each year and create art together.  The Unity Park Advisory Council emphasizes that the event’s intention is to establish a sense of creative reciprocity between artists and children. Since the idea isn’t only for children to leave with a new piece of art, having benefited from the artistic guidance of professionals, it is also for the professionals themselves, so that they come out of the experience newly inspired by young talent and fresh energy.  

The Unity Park Advisory Council  will provide canvases, boards, paints and brushes for older participants and finger paints, paper and crafting for younger participants. The council will also provide snacks, as well as music for those seeking diversion or inspiration. So if being teamed up with great artists, receiving free supplies, food and music isn’t enough of an incentive, maybe what will get you out of bed this Saturday morning is the thought that all artwork created during Art in the Park will be displayed at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival the following weekend!  And by all means, if you would rather just take your art home with you, you can certainly do so! All proceeds of Art in the Park pieces sold during the festival will go towards keeping programming alive and thriving at Unity Park.

Yet again, Logan Square is giving you a chance to participate in its thriving artistic community: this weekend at Art in the Park, and the next at MAAF, so we hope to see many of your faces in the next few weeks!
