For 32 years, people from near and far have looked forward to attending Naperville Art League’s Riverwalk Fine Art Fair. Scheduled this year for Sat. and Sun., Sept. 16 and 17, the show will bring some of the top rated national and international artists to Naperville’s downtown section for a two-day exhibition and sale.
As the Naperville Art League’s premier event, the Riverwalk Fine Art Fair garners kudos from participating artists and attendees and consistently appears on “best of” lists from local publications and artists’ resources. Because of its reputation, the fair attracts the attention of hundreds of artists who apply to the juried event with the hopes of being chosen for one of 135 booth spots available. The selected artists then present a colorful display of fine art and fine craft in the surrounds of Naperville’s crown jewel, the Riverwalk. As complements, the DuPage Children’s Museum will be on site with an activity tent in the parking lot at Jackson and Main. The DuPage Symphony and the Chicago Sinfonietta will perform in the amphitheater at the west end both days, giving attendees an opportunity to shop, interact or just relax and enjoy.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! Just across the footbridge by the Dandelion Fountain lies an exciting landscape filled with traditional European charm and contemporary urban styling. The newly revitalized Water Street District offers a palette of trendy restaurants and ample parking. Stop for a drink, stay for dinner, take a stroll along the Riverwalk extension to see the new Century Walk Mural Series, “Streaming History,” created by Riverwalk Fine Art Fair artist and Santa Fe resident, Debora Duran Geiger. Your artistic escape awaits! Make plans to take it all in and discover the bounty in your midst.
