Attracting over 50 Artists in their second year, and looking to increase the Artist alliance for 2019, the Palos Park Art Festival is back again. For over one hundred years, the Village of Palos Park has been a haven for the fine arts. The natural beauty and simple rhythm of life in Palos Park appeals to artists and writers seeking inspiration and solitude for their work.
Palos Park is considered by many, past and present, as an artists’ colony where the creative can be surrounded in peace and natural beauty. Painters Claude Buck, Emile Grumieaux, Felix Russmann, renowned sculptor Lorado Taft, and writers Sherwood Anderson and a young Ernest Hemingway enjoyed the serene landscape here.
Palos Park Art Festival is located on the Village Green, the community gathering place, set with a Forest vista of the Park. The 1939 Historical Recreation Center and portico add to the atmosphere of the entire event. We hope you join us!
