The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild in Elmhurst, IL is hosting the First Annual Art Crawl at the Elmhurst Art Museum on August 27, 2016. Proceeds benefit the Elmhurst Artists’ Guild Scholarship Fund. Funds will be used to award scholarships to two high school students.
The Art Crawl is a self-guided walking & trolleying tour of Elmhurst’s museum campus and business sector. Visitors participate by walking and trolleying around town and exploring each venue. An interactive map will be posted on the Guild’s website so visitors can view the locations of participating artists and vendors. The Elmhurst Artists’ Guild (EAG) is excited to have the York Theatre, an Elmhurst landmark, kick off this inaugural event with a special morning screening of “ET the Extra-Terrestrial”; all proceeds will go to the EAG Scholarship Fund.
The EAG invites artists and vendors to set up booths to sell and show their products. Artist’s fees for a space is $75.00, with $50.00 going to the EAG Scholarship Fund and $25.00 going to the Elmhurst Art Museum. The fee for vendors is $150.00, with $125.00 going to the EAG Scholarship Fund and $25.00 going to the Elmhurst Art Museum.
