Art in Alternative Spaces

presents

Inaugural Skokie Art Walk

Downtown Skokie transformed into a vibrant celebration of the arts!
The Skokie Art Walk will showcase the works of talented professional and student artists in restaurants and businesses in downtown Skokie (along Oakton St. and Lincoln Ave.) during the entire month of May, 2013.
The juried artists works will be displayed in storefront windows, while the student artworks from Niles North and Niles West High School will be displayed at Crafty Beaver Home Center, 4810 Oakton.
Also, K-8 student artworks from elementary and middle schools in Skokie will be on display at Bughouse Studio (4845 Oakton) throughout the month of May.
While visitors are invited to tour downtown Skokie to view the art on display anytime throughout the month, the live activities will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from noon – 5 pm.    On that Saturday, visitors are invited to pick up an Art Walk map at any participating business; meet the artists at their display locations; listen to roaming musicians;  enjoy plein air artists paint live outdoors and hear jazz musicians from the Skokie School of Music play under the Gazebo in the Memorial Park at Krier Plaza (corner of Oakton and Lincoln); and attend the free artists’ reception followed by Open Mic Performances at Gorilla Tango/Skokie Theatre.

Message from the Mayor of Skokie:  

Dear Friends,

Congratulations to Anatomically Correct, the Independent Merchants of Downtown Skokie and all of the organizers for their hard work in creating the Skokie Art Walk that takes place in Downtown Skokie during May 2013. This creative endeavor is most imaginative and I wish you every success. The Skokie Art Walk program gives artists and students an opportunity to display their works to the public in a unique setting and, I’m sure, the Art Walk will be a magnet for visitors to our downtown restaurants and businesses. The Skokie Art Walk has exciting activities for all ages. Thank you for your efforts and please accept my best wishes for your every success. Sincerely, George Van Dusen Mayor
