Get to know the 250 nationally acclaimed artists selected for the Old Town Art Fair in Chicago! Artists often name this as their favorite event of the year in large part because the Old Town Art Fair crowd is known for their love of art, curiosity and friendliness. Hear what they have to say.
Along the streets of the Old Town Triangle Historic District, you’ll find an inspiring collection of 2D and 3D Fine Art including Mixed Media, Drawings, Paintings, Photography, Printmaking, Ceramics, Glass, Fiber, Jewelry and works in Metal, Stone and Wood. The Old Town Art Fair features Fine Art – exclusively – and allows only original pieces created by the artists themselves. Reproductions and crafts, among other things, are not permitted.

Artists from across the U.S. and Canada are selected by an independent jury of art professionals. Nearly half of the artists are newly juried in each year, providing an opportunity for different artists to exhibit at this highly sought after event. This system allows for rich mix of returning favorites and fresh, new art to discover!
