The event will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2009 from 4 – 6 pm at Las Palmas Restaurant, 474 Central Ave, Highland Park, IL. There is a $20 suggested donation. Tickets can be purchased in advance by phone . Seating is limited.

Also, for one-day only, on June 6, 2009 (noon - 5 pm) many of the Highland Park merchants will participate in our Highland Park Art Walk Treasure Hunt by hosting receptions, serving refreshments and/or offering promotional discounts.   Visitors are eligible for a drawing to win a gift certificate to one of the following Highland Park Businesses (limit one entry and one winner per household):  The Bootery, Nail Bar, H.P.

The Alliance was founded in 2008 to enhance the economic vitality of the central business district of Highland Park.

Special Thanks to:   

 

Ann Rosen will receive the 2009 HP Art Walk award for Outstanding Contributions to the Arts on June 6, 2009 (4 - 6 p) at Las Palmas Restaurant, 474 Central Ave, Highland Park, IL

Ann Rosen recently retired after 17 1/2 years as Executive Director of The Art Center Highland Park. During her tenure the center flourished moving three times to larger facilities culminating in its present  location 1957 Sheridan, Highland Park. Each move resulted in increased  participation by artists and the general public.

Before coming to the center, Ann exhibited her own paintings and was an educator teaching art to adults and children in the public schools.  Her educational background from The Graduate School of the Art  Institute and the University of Illinois plus her volunteer experiences inspired a dedication of nurturing the art experience in  the local community. Ann accomplished this by initiating multi level art classes, cultural programs and professional gallery exhibits. A frequent juror and curator for art exhibits she values a close association with area artists and art administrators.

In her retirement Ann looks forward to having more time to do her own art work, volunteering and continuing her involvement with the arts and her community.
