Join us for Lubeznik Art and Artisan Festival (LAAF). Our annual art festival has been completely redesigned this summer and relocated to our LCA campus at the corner of West 2nd and Washington Streets. ArtMakers receive 2 free passes for Saturday & Sunday. You should have received your email with instructions on how to redeem those passes this week.
One of the newest elements of this summer's festival will occur on the evening prior to LAAF on Friday, August 19, from 5:00 to 9:30pm. Entitled AVANT: an evening of Serious Moonlight, it is our opening night festival preview fundraiser. The schedule is as follows:
5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Art preview/Wine reception
Stroll Galleries and outdoor booths
Purchase before the crowds
7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
Signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres
High Jinks stilt dancers / Fire Dance
DJ dance party/ “Let’s Dance”
Art Makers will begin the AVANT evening with a private guided tour of the guest artists' work, led by gallery owners whose work is represented at this festival. To keep you refreshed and free from hunger, champagne and hors d'oeuvres will be served!
It would be a joy to have you join us as we turn this new page in the LCA events calendar! Please purchase your ticket for AVANT on eventbrite or by calling 219-874-4900. Please don't forget to identify yourselves as Art Makers to let us know if we should chill that wine and warm up those hors d'oeuvres for you!
You will soon be receiving your entrance packet providing you free access to the endless programs and exhibits which comprise Art Expo 2016 at Navy Pier September 19 through 22. Art Expo is a renowned international exhibit of contemporary and modern art. Later in the fall, as an ArtMaker, you will receive your entrance packet for SOFA, the show of Sculpture, Objects, Functional Art and design, also held at Navy Pier, from November 3 through 6.
