Insider Tips

•Inside the Old Town Art Fair there is a Garden Walk featuring 50+ gardens hidden away in one of Chicago’s most charming historic neighborhoods. Pick up your map of the gardens at any of the art fair entrances. 

•Each piece of artwork you see displayed at the Old Town Art Fair is one of a kind (no reproductions allowed), so buy the piece of artwork you love when you see it or you might miss out. Most artists will happily store the piece for you while you continue to enjoy the art fair.

 

•Y’all are the experts in getting around Chicago and I’m sure you can find your way to Old Town (cough – brown line to Sedgwick station), but did you know we will happily arrange to deliver your new Dahlquist artwork for free so you don’t have to wrestle it back home on the train.

Can’t wait until next week? Visit my online gallery, then contact me to reserve your favorite piece – you’ll be able to breeze in and pick it up at the show, or have it shipped right to your door! 

I can’t do it without you, please help me spread the word!

History Vendor


 

A Scavenger Hunt Meets A History Lesson!

1 of 3 History Vendors in City Market Park

Living and working in Columbus Park, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Kansas City, I have come to appreciate the synergy between a neighborhood’s history, its residents, and the arts. I know first hand that a long history helps give a neighborhood identity, but it’s the creativity of its residents and visitors that, if engaged, can bring it life. And, of course you already know I am smitten by old photographs. So…

In History Vendor I am using vintage vending machines to freely distribute historic photographs of the area surrounding City Market Park. I invite participants through the use of photographs, maps and stories to explore the historically rich River Market District. The three machines will be on display through October. (Or until we run out of the 45,000 history cards we have to vend!)
