Kick off the summer with a weekend of community and creativity when the Promenade of Art returns to the heart of Arlington Heights this June. More than 110 juried artists hailing from across the country will showcase and sell original work within a variety of categories including paintings, photography, ceramics, jewelry, and sculpture. Live art demonstrations will give festival-goers the unique opportunity to see the masters at work. Adding to the excitement is the 2nd Annual Taste of Arlington Heights*, which will feature delicious dishes and drinks from nearby restaurants. With this new addition, fine arts and flavorful food come together in perfect harmony for Amdur Productions’ 12th annual Promenade of Art.
